Fresh from his World Cup debut in Japan, Irish international Jack Carty exchanged his boots for a scissors to officially cut the tape and declare open the new showhouse at An Maolán, Barna.
The Connacht Rugby outhalf posed for photographs and signed rugby balls for guests and purchasers of Phase 1 along with representatives of Edward Building, Shane Heskin and staff from Heskin Auctioneers, who are the agents for An Maolán, Joan O'Brien of O’Brien solicitors, Oranmore, and Pauline Dowling, interior designer.
Triona Barrett, speaking on behalf of Edward Building, said the group were happy with progress of the site to date and the levels of interest generated in purchasers. She said the completion of the showhouse was a unique opportunity to demonstrate the acumen and standards brought to An Maolán by Edward Buildings in its first residential development in Galway since the completion of the much-admired Barna Demesne.
Shane Heskin said he was “delighted" with the level of sales that had been achieved to date.
"The intention was to be launching the houses for sale at this time, but more than 50 per cent of the houses have been sold."
An Maolán is located in the much sought after idyllic village of Barna, eight kilometres from Galway city. The development is situated on a road that is known locally as The Paint Box Road in Barna,
The low density development of 48 homes offers a mix of four bed semi-detached and detached homes.
Each property will achieve a BER rating of A3 due to the energy features such as air to water heating throughout, and highly efficient insulation to the cavities and roof.
An Maolán is an attractive option for both families and those who wish to downsize and avail of a location that is within walking distance of all local amenities.
