    Hi,

    Thanks for that. But would Coilte not be interested in it for forestry, and so would this not raise the bar?

    sorry, is that €400 per acre? is this purchase price? I take it that land would be unusable for anything else? unable to bring a tractor on it?

    I thought the folly of draining "bogland" (which sequesters about four times as much carbon as the Amazonian rain forest) had been understood by now. You will find information on present and future management of Ireland's most precious resource under a number of categories on government website.

    Don't see where the Op said they were planning to drain said 'bog' land?

    The land maybe simply 'boggy' meaning very wet and not actually classified as either blanket bog or raised bog.

    If its bog and in a mountainous area - its likley blanket bog which is made up of a very shallow layer of peat overlying rock.

    Not sure where you figures are from - but looks like you are referring to undisturbed lowland raised bogland. Unlikely to be found in these types of areas tbh.

    Interestingly grassland is also acknowledged by the the European environmental agency as an extremly valuable carbon sink

    Btw Coilte is a semi state run body administrated by the government. Perhaps you should have a word with them about some of your concerns...

    Agree no use was identified by the OP but I was responding to this turn of the thread. :-

    Ring Henry and he'll tell you this land is for sale at €100,000. Put in a cash offer of 50k and the owner will take it. One of many examples if you look around. A lot of the land around here goes for cash for way lower than the stated prices are. Not being local doesn't help though

    Just start looking in your local mountainy areas on DAFT I would think, an hours scrolling should throw up a few options. If your not handy on the Internet, ring a few auctioneers in the nearest town to your chosen mountain range. I'm quite sure that they'll bite the hand off you if you're paying €1000/acre for €500/acre land and they should easily fill your 400 acre order.

    BTW I'd say you'd no longer be eligible to be categorised as a smallholder with 400 acres, you surely should have graduated to the farming and forestry forum.
