Elderly to get new homes in Stradbally

New homes are set to be provided for elderly people in Stradbally who are tenants of Laois County Council.

Cluid Housing has worked with Brookhaven Healthcare to provide six new homes to retired people within Droimnín Retirement Village in Stradbally.

Speaking at the announcement, Gearóid Brennan, Chief Executive of Brookhaven Healthcare said he was happy to see the new homes delivered.

“We have worked closely with Clúid on the project and are delighted to have been in a position to support Laois County Council in its efforts to provide suitable housing to retired people in the community.

“This is a mixed development comprising private and local authority units. Already there is a great community spirit within the village where occupants can enjoy all the benefits of a tranquil setting close to all the amenities available in any small town like Stradbally,” he said.

As part of the development, a new café, The Oughaval Café was also recently added in order to provide somewhere for residents to meet for coffee and a chat, as well as for visitors to avail of refreshments.

Clúid housing is the largest housing association within the country, with the most ambitious programme for increasing affordable housing across Ireland.

Mr Brennan thanked local politicians, particularly Councillors Tom Mulhall and Pascal McEvoy for their support and their help to the residents of the Retirement Village during construction.
