R1,495.00

East of the River Barrow, Kenneth Ashmore’s rolling lowland farm, Knockroe – An Cnoc Rua, Red Hill – stands on the Bo Choill Road east of Maganey, which runs towards the old town of Castledermot. In an ancient landscape scattered with Bronze Age remnants, the well-drained and quick-drying sandy loams, derived from limestone, make for good tilling in the early spring and are ideal for a long barley-growing season.
