Young farmer, expansion or organics
Commenting on the listing, a spokesperson for the auctioneering firm said:
“This is an excellent opportunity for a young farmer who wants to strike out on his/her own who would have a quality farm and building to work with.”
“The opportunity to build on the farm would enhance the overall appeal of this compact holding.”
“Also, it will appeal to experienced farmers looking to expand their enterprise.”
“The opportunity to develop an organic farm or create a horticultural centre is also a very viable proposition.”
“There is demand for such products in the neighbouring towns and villages and the Galway market,” the spokesperson concluded.
In terms of location, Carrabane National School is three kilometres away, and Saint Raphaels College and the vocational school are three kilometres away in Loughrea.
