North Kildare land, especially on border with Meath, is making headline prices in recent months. A number of properties coming for sale in the area should make for interesting sales in the coming weeks.

On the Maynooth side of the town, it is home to grazing land, tillage a bio-energy crop and forestry. The sale is guided by Coonans of Maynooth at a figure in excess of €1.5m or over €18,750/ac.

Located about 300 to 400m from the famous Moyglare Stud the land has over 875m of road frontage along the Moyglare Road and frontage on to the River Rye.

The holding is currently in four fields with one in winter corn, one in miscanthus and two in grass. An 11.5ac plantation of forestry made up mainly of beech and ash planted about 20 years ago.
