The number of farms on the border of Carlow/Kilkenny in the sales rooms and sales rooms this year.

Very few of them were large holdings and this trend will continue with the arrival on the market of the powerful farm 126ac tillage at Tomard, Ramelton. The residential holding is guided by the auctioneer Pat Gannon at €1.65 m or €13,000/AC.

I made my way to the Southeast in the company said Mr Gannon.

After consoling him about the recent loss cats in my home city of Limerick in the hurling championship, throw out all discussion sliotar and admired the city. Recent rains have contributed to the soft green leaves to fight against brown and the crunch left a long, dry summer and the corn is in excellent condition.


When we got to the farm 126ac for Tomard, the crop was like a Golden cloak that covers the earth. Residential holding is located 3 km from the Arboretum at Ramelton, 15km from Carlow and 25 km from Kilkenny city.

The walk, winding among the tillage of the field leads to a private house, located in the center of the farm and consists of an old two storey house needs serious repair. The house has three bedrooms, kitchen/dining room, old kitchen and two living rooms.

There are a wide range of old stone buildings in the yard, which contains all the elements of a traditional farmyard, including cows-barns, a pigsty and stable.

Really there are all the classic Irish needs a shelter including a pump in the yard. The barns are in good shape with a number of cow-bars was reroofed leaving them completely dry inside. There is a fine five-column haybarn with double lean, that would be an asset on any farm.

The son of former President of IFA and is known for Meath farmer Tom Clinton last week bought the neighbouring farm 105ac for €960,000 or just €9,000/AC. The sale price beat the pre-auction guide of €110,000.

Underground animals

Land is a better land under a fine crop of grain. The main section extending to 103ac adjacent to the M9 motorway with underground transport of animals by connecting it to 8.7 AC of the holding on the opposite side of the highway, which includes 3.5 acof forestry.

The company has a decent frontage on a secondary road leading to the old Kilkenny-Wexford road, and also comes with a large frontage onto the river barrow.


While the land was leased over the past few years they have been in the best of cereals sown ditch in each area. Only some mowing hedges traditional hedges.

The parcel 23ac of the best on the earth is less than 1 km from the main farm plot with frontage on two roads completely under tillage. Given its size, accessibility and fertility of this piece should command a price premium.

Seats will be sold at auction Pat Gannon in three lots. The first will consist of the entire residential holding 126ac, the second parcel will consist of 103ac along with residence and outbuildings, and the last lot-23ac located away from the main farm.

“Price of €13,000/AC is a reasonable guide for this farm,” Mr. Gannon says, “it is in order from the top.

“I expect 23ac to do particularly well.”

The auction takes place at 3pm on Wednesday, September 5 at the Lord Bagenal hotel, Ramelton, County Carlow.
