A block of good Wexford land is for sale and going for auction this month.

The 24ac is at Deerpark, Foulksmills, and it’s being sold by Sherry Fitzgerald Radford.

The guide price is €240,000 - equivalent to €10,000/ac.

The location is midway between Wexford town and New Ross, not far from Taghmon.

There is very good, free-draining land in this area and, according to auctioneer John Radford, the land for sale is right up there with the best of it.

Good land all the way to the ditch

“It’s good land all the way to the ditch,” he said. “The area is known to be good tillage land.”

The holding for sale is laid out in three divisions, has some road frontage and a number of sheds.

These include a three-bay round-roofed hay shed, with lean-to and concrete floor.

There is a concrete yard area and some older, smaller sheds.

The main hayshed is about 40 years old but is in good working condition.

John Radford said that there has been good interest in the land, which goes for auction on 19 May.

“There is a lack of supply of land down here at the moment,” he said.

He believes that supply of land for sale is even tighter now than in 2020.
