Councillors rejected plans for a series of social housing estates in Moycullen, in what was the third development planned by Galway County Council.
An estate of 49 council houses in the Connemara village has been built and is occupied, while 48 more council houses are to be built in another estate in the village near Galway city.
However, local councillors last week rejected a plan to build a third estate of 31 houses near a local playground.
This comes as the local authority’s plans to build 600 social homes in the village by 2030.
The Part 8 planning application was rejected on Friday by Connemara Municipal District councillors, with Fianna Fáil councillors Noel Thomas, Dáithí O Cualáin, Gerry King and Seamus Walsh, and Independent councillor Tomás Ó Curraoin, all voting against the plans.
