  Auctioneer Ivan Connaughton states: “This is a fine farm to come on the open market. The large investment in the ultra-modern farm buildings by the current owners together with an extensive holding of top-quality agricultural lands has attracted interest from both near and far.

  “The potential for transformation into dairy or usage as a large feed lot has attracted additional interest. Its location in a renowned farming district and conveniently situated close to the Galway/Dublin M6 motorway is a major advantage. The farm entitlements that total approximately €21,000 per annum are included in the sale and has received a positive response from interested parties to date.
