A 122ac farm with cattle yard is on sale near Killeigh, Co Offaly.

The property at Newtown is for sale from Matt Dunne & Associates by public auction on 13 June.

The farm lies on the L2001, 3.5km off the main Tullamore to Portarlington road. It is 9km from Tullamore, 29km from Portlaoise and 40km from Kildare.

The farm was previously owned by the Cleary family, synonymous with Glenisk Dairies. They have leased the farm from the vendor for the past seven years.

The farm is in one division, all in grass, and most has been reseeded in recent years.

Road frontage

It has mature hedges and road frontage. The yard has cubicle sheds with capacity for 214 cattle, a large silage slab and slurry storage tanks.

“The farm has an internal service road and is on a rich vein of land that suits both dairying and tillage,” auctioneer Matt Dunne said. He is guiding the farm at €12,300/ac.
