The development marks the beginning of Mayo County Council’s stream of new build social/affordable housing units coming to fruition between 2018 - 2021.
The project commenced last May and was completed just over a year later. The housing development includes the construction of four new accessible dwellings in a single terrace; two single-storey houses and two apartments, with level access showers and protected private gardens to the front and rear.
