This was part of the lovely green space that used to be Dun Laoghaire golf club before it was sold to Cosgraves for development back in the Celtic Tiger. They built a new course for DL club up in the hills near Kilternan. So far Cosgraves have developed Honeypark and the retail unit with Tescos on the other side of the Glenageary road where maybe half of the golf course was. I am sure that the other half will be built on when Cosgraves see enough demand and profit to move forward with it.
This is well under way. They dug up Lower Mounttown Road for 2 months to lay pipes for water and utilities to service the houses. They are cutting in to the greenfield site via the estates opposite McCormacks pub.
And there is another Honey Park phase close to completion - called Brickfield - on the Tesco side of the road as well.
Where they pitch the prices for these separate lots will be an interesting weathervane.
Sorry to hijack thread, but similar question about same location - land at Sallynoggin roundabout onto Sallynoggin Road, think Jones Lang LaSalle hoardings up, site of a former pub? Anyone know what’s to be built here?
Dun laoghaire Rathdown Planning ref for demolition of the Deerhunter pub & all building on site,
A proposed Glenageary Village, What looks like a small shopping centre, very celtic tigerish, I havn’t read through tthe whole file to see if it was granted,
But there are documents relating to An Bord Pleanala which suggests, planning was granted in some form if the pub was Demolished.

Decision: GRANT PERMISSION
Decision Date: 22-Jun-2006
What the general area does not need is more supermarkets, cafes, coffee shops, “retail opportunities” etc. The main street in Dun Laoghaire will be decimated further and it’s in pretty bad shape at the moment (although DL is shaping up well along the seafront).
The social housing idea proposed by both Left and Right at that meeting looks a better idea.
