There are certain properties in Ireland that a comprehensive novel could be written about. If the walls could talk around Castlegrace Estate on 120 acres near Cahir in Tipperary, it would make for quite the story.

When I walked the grounds with agents Michael Daniels of Michael H Daniels Auctioneers and John Shelly of Shelly Purcell Auctioneers, the different stories told of the holding was quite phenomenal.
