HOUSING DEVELOPMENT: The recent acquisition of an 8 acre field situated between the ‘98 monument and the Moate Hill by Carlow CO. Council has the potential for the erection of 50 new houses. This would make it one of the biggest developments for any village in Carlow in recent years. The 50 houses would consist of co-operative housing, voluntary houses, private and local authority houses. The local authority would service the site. When completed, this development would bring to 94 the total number of houses built in the village since 1973. Carlow Co. Council plan to develop the area to the right of St’ Joseph’s Tce. in 2002. The council is also prepared to cooperate with T.A.D.A who have availed of a grant of £6,000 from the American fund to develop the old parish hall.
