It is rare to see almost 120 acres of good-quality ground come to the market in the west of Ireland. For John Dolan, the Galway-based auctioneer handling the sale, it is as big as he can remember in recent times in this area.

Located at Skenageehy, circa 4km from Laurencetown, Co Galway, this parcel of land is substantial. Including a residence and a farmyard, the property packs a punch. Previously farmed by a beef and sheep farmer, this good east Galway ground is equally suited to dairying.
