The new estate is being built Ashthorn Avenue off the N84, and accessed through the existing housing estate adjacent to the site.

When completed, the Gort na Fuinse estate will consist of 12 two-bed houses, 44 three-bedroom houses, and 14 four-bedroom houses.

The county council is due to make a decision on this EOT application by January 15.
