A TOTAL of 29 families are to bring life back into what was once an unsightly ghost estate of apartments in Macroom.

Clúid Housing, in partnership with Cork County Council, has purchased the apartment complex in ‘The Granary’ at Sleaveen Road and the families, all from Cork County Council’s housing waiting list, are currently moving into their new homes. 

The development is located close to Macroom town centre and comprises two and three bedroom units which were originally built in 2005, but had been idle for  years.

Clúid and Cork County Council have combined forces to deliver more housing. ‘The Granary is an example of the innovative and creative housing solutions, based on effective partnerships, which have become part and parcel of the delivery of the national Social Housing Strategy,’ said a Council spokesperson.
