Auctioneer Joe McCarthy of Irish & European, Cork, is handling the sale of a sizeable circa 141-acre farm that is sure to attract plenty of competition. At Barrinclay, Mourneabbey, just outside Mallow, Co Cork, the farm includes a modern two-storey residence and a substantial farmyard all set on circa 141 acres of excellent quality land.

According to McCarthy, there isn’t “an ounce of waste” on this farm, with about 135 acres currently under tillage. Formerly run as a dairy enterprise, a number of farm roadways remain in place, running throughout the land, which is all in one sizeable block around the house. In all, the land is laid out in about nine large paddocks with significant frontage on to a secondary road that leads back on to the main N20 Mallow-to-Cork road.
