A 65ac residential dairy farm is on the market 10km outside Roscrea in Co Tipperary. The farm is at Derrygooney, Knock, which is on the Tipperary-Laois border. The farm is being sold by Templemore-based auctioneer Noel Coonan and it’s on offer by private treaty. To get to Knock you head out the New Road from Roscrea.
The farm is on the edge of the M7 motorway. Access to the farm is by a long avenue. The land is all in one block and sits on the county line, with some of it in Tipperary, some in Laois.
There is very good land in the locality and the land on this farm is mostly good quality. The farm has internal roadways giving access to all fields and paddocks.
In addition to vehicle roadways, there are cow roadways giving access back to the yard. The land is divided up into paddocks three to four acres in size.
The yard is centrally located on the land. There is a large number of sheds and these include a 10-unit herringbone milking parlour with automatic feeders supplied by two feed bins and a new bulk milk tank. There is a slatted cubicle house with 130 cubicles and an automatic scraper system. There are also slatted beef sheds, an open calf shed and a number of haysheds.
The house is about 100 years old but was modernised about 10 years ago. It is has three bedrooms. It has been unoccupied for 12 months.
Noel Coonan said that the guide price for the farm is in excess of €900,000 and that there is already an offer of €750,000.
