Work is to commence next week on the development of 18 council houses at Abbey Quarter in Ballyhaunis.
Fine Gael Cllr. John Cribbin says this will be a huge boost to the local economy.
The contractors appointed for the development are McHugh’s of Ballindine.
It is expected the work will be completed by the summer of 2020.
Cllr. Cribbin says this project is a timely boost for the local economy on the back of the €8 million refurbishment of Ballyhaunis Community School which is due to be fully completed shortly.
