Work is advancing rapidly on a housing and train commuter car park in the heart of Portlaoise.
Workers are onsite at the Laois County Council led project on land near Portlaoise Train Station and to the rear of the former CBS secondary school.
The five-acre site will include a 1.2 acre car park built. A further two acres will accommodate suitable for single people or small families.
The homes are intended to be built by the Clúid housing agency, for rent to people on Laois County Council's waiting list.
Some mature trees have had to be removed to facilitate the work. However, the listed building on the sit is being retained.
