Rosemount Park was Foscadh Housing’s first housing project. The estate was completed in 2002 with a mix of 15 homes, comprising six, two bedroom and four, three bedroom homes and five bungalows. The homes provide accommodation for people on Tipperary County Council’s waiting list for the area. The Village of Rosegreen is also the home of the world famous Ballydoyle Stables and is approximately 10km south of Cashel on the Cashel to Clonmel Road.
Massereene Close was built in 2004 by Foscadh Housing and comprises eight, three bedroom family homes. The estate was supported by Louth County Council and was funded by the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government. Each home provides high quality, secure accommodation for families on Louth County Council’s waiting list for the Collon area. Collon village is located in the south-west County Louth and is situated on the N2 national primary road.
Henry Laffan Heights in Killenaule, County Tipperary was completed by Foscadh Housing in 2006. The estate provides 17 three bedroom family homes and eight, two bedroom bungalows specifically allocated to older people or those with special needs. The estate was supported by Tipperary County Council and was funded by the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government and provides accommodation for people on Tipperary County Council’s waiting list for the area. Foscadh Housing began its working partnership with the Safe Home Programme while building this estate. The Safe Home Programme assists and supports older Irish born emigrants living abroad to return to Ireland to live. The picturesque town of Killenaule is located 19km east of Cashel on the R689 and the R691 regional road.
In 2019, Foscadh Housing was announced winner of the Community Integration in Housing Award by the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH), recognising Foscadh’s achievements in community integration at the Lia Bhrega estate in Drogheda, home to families, single people, the elderly and people with special needs from 18 different nationalities. As a scalable model for community integration, Lia Bhrega provides an excellent example of what can be achieved when working together towards a common goal.
Foscadh Housing launched Phase One and Phase Two of Lia Bhrega, its largest development, in 2009. The final phase comprising four more homes was completed in 2014, successfully addressing the demand for much needed accommodation for applicants on Drogheda Borough Council’s waiting list. To fund the 69 unit development, Foscadh Housing obtained private finance and also availed of the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government’s CALF (Capital Advance Leasing Facility) programme and the innovative “Build to Lease” social housing programme. The homes are a result of a collaborative partnership between Foscadh, Drogheda Borough Council, the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government, the Housing Finance Agency and private lenders. Foscadh Housing also worked with partners The Safe Home Programme and the Drogheda’s Homeless Aid to allocate homes to those in need. Lia Bhrega is located in Drogheda, a medieval town situated on the river Boyne and in the world-famous Boyne Valley region, just off the M1 motorway and 56km north of Dublin.
