Fintan Gilligan believes his most recent addition to the property marketplace, in the form of a 4-room derelict stone-built cottage with farm buildings on circa 0.75-acres, offers an “excellent re-development opportunity”.

However, he has advised viewers that a €50,000 Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant is available (subject to qualification), as reported by That’s Farming in this news article.
The property’s accommodation extends to circa 40 sq.mt and includes a kitchen, a living room and two bedrooms, while externally, there is a 2-bay slatted shed, a 2-bay open shed and a hay shed with two lean-tos.
The property firm is seeking €75,000 for the listing.
