Intro Text 

We are delighted to announce the completion of 44 new homes at Rosemount Court, Dundrum, Dublin 14, which have been funded by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government through Rebuilding Ireland.

This housing scheme was jointly opened today, Friday 7th December, by An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Ossian Smyth, and Eoghan Murphy, TD, Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government.

Built in close proximity to existing dwellings on a brown field site previously occupied by multi-storey flats, these new high quality dwellings comprise of 34 family homes and 12 apartments and provide a further 44 homes as part of the Council’s housing delivery target of 1,563 social housing units by the end of 2021.

The development, which achieves 50 units per hectare, is set around a shared community green, promotes a high degree of passive surveillance of the public areas and provides a secure sense of place and community for the residents. 

All homes are built to high environmental standards in keeping with our ethos of providing bright, spacious, comfortable accommodation, with low running costs.


Speaking at the launch, An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Smyth, said,

I am delighted with the progress of the dlr housing programme. The building of new homes remains a major pillar of our housing delivery programme, with 101 houses completed so far this year and a further 50 to be completed in the coming weeks. Like all homes constructed by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, these homes have been built to a high quality, and are in residential areas with access to amenities and services".

The project, which was designed by the Council’s Architects’ Department in conjunction with Walsh Associates Architects & Project Managers, was built by Townlink Construction Ltd.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council wishes to acknowledge the co-operation of local residents and would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their patience whilst this project was being constructed.
