A parcel of prime agricultural lands in Co Laois is heading for online auction on Tuesday 22 March at 4pm sharp.

Listed with Rathdowney-based, Property Partners Mansfield, the circa-17ac (6.75ha) property at Skeagh, Aghaboe, Ballacolla, Borris-in-Ossory, are renowned for their excellent fattening quality. Currently in permanent pasture, the lands are suitable for either grazing or tillage purposes and have been used for both over the years.

Ideal for all farming purposes, this holding could be an option for those willing to invest and have a future rental income also.

Divided into two larger fields of good-quality soil, they are surrounded by mature hedgerows. A smaller one-acre field on the southern bank of the River Gully forms the northern boundary of the property. Water supply is from a tributary of the river.

Situated a short distance north of the M7 motorway, the property is within 2km of Aghaboe Abbey and less than 8km from Ballacolla, 13km from Rathdowney and 16km from Abbeyleix.

Similar ground within the county has been making in excess of €12,000/ac so that’s a good guide to go on.

The auction will take place on propertypartnersonlineauctions.ie and those interested in bidding are requested to contact auctioneer William Mansfield.
