Nolai and Puckane.

Can you use http://maps.ose.ie/ to chect these names.

For Puckane I think the estate on Borrisokane Road, Nenagh, is called Drumin Village and can be seen here

Ths one in Ballycommon is shown here and has no name BUT I dug up "for sale ballycommon" links in Google and quickly ( sub 15 secs ) found it was called Carrig Derg, Ballycommon, Cp. Tipperary.

As for Cloghan Nolai the 3 links are for 1 estates. maps.osi.ie had no names here . "for sale cloghan offaly" in Google kicks a few estate names out fairly rapid.

Cluain na Spideoga looks like the name of the Banagher road one and the Birr road link jumps into it. HERE ???

There is an estate called Breachach on the Birr Road but I am not confident it is that ghostly like , lookks like 8/10 occupied and external works finished except for 1 coat of tarmac maybe :)

Quote:
The first government-ordered audit of how many such estates exist has now revealed the extent of the problem. A previous estimate, earlier this year, calculated there were 621.

Many of the estates in the new total of 2,700 are located in the midlands and north-west, the Irish Independent has learnt.

The report outlines six categories of properties,ranging from those which are 'turn key''-- finished but unoccupied-- to estates where only preliminary groundwork has taken place. Other estates are partially occupied, but have half-built houses and apartments which are boarded up.

One-in-four unoccupied buildings in ghost estates pose serious safety risks because sewers have been left open, water is contaminated and building sites are not secured properly.

Problem

Last April, Planning Minister Ciaran Cuffe and Housing Minister Michael Finneran jointly ordered an investigation into the scale of the problem.

Each local authority was told to report the exact number of ghost estates in their area.

As a result, a report outlining the situation is to be published in the coming weeks.

Many of the new houses will be bulldozed because of health and safety concerns. Others will be taken over by local authorities for use as social housing.

Dodgy areas in the north centre (The Island) and north west parts of Limerick ( Moyross) have no streetview. This is a shame seeing as we propose to spend €3bn or whatever on regenerating parts of Limerick .....meaning we should have an idea what we are paying 'for' by now.

But O' Malley Park does. Note the 'enhanced' base on the CCTV tower :)

Castlelyons, Co. Cork. Unfinished Estate with planning for 44 houses, 1 resident (does it still count as a ghost estate?) and the 3 bed social housing at the front has now been finished with maybe a unit or 2 sold, advertised at the knock down bargain price of about €140k. The detached 4 beds were released at €500k.

The entrance

The Government seem to define it as follows:
Quote:
Ghost estates are defined as those that contain unfinished, unoccupied, or partially occupied house and apartment blocks.
...
[With] six categories of properties,ranging from those which are 'turn key''-- finished but unoccupied-- to estates where only preliminary groundwork has taken place.

haven't seen any Louth on this thread yet. Here's a few of the top of my head:

Carlinn Hall:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 5,,0,-5.35

"Stamanaran" (The google car didnt go in and round the corner but trust me there's way more in behind there.
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 67,,0,2.52

"Marlmount"
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 1,,0,21.99

"Earlsfort"
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 13,,0,6.81

Not sure what this one is called but it really pisses me off. It is so completely out of place. Anyone who has ever been to Carlingford knows what a beautiful very old medieval village it is. How a shit ugly generic housing estate like this ever got planning permission is beyond me. Actually its not...[mod edit]. What a shit hole. There's another one just down the road from it too.
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 24.47,,0,5

Last one - right by my folks house. These houses were originally listed for €450k each (still says it on the sign in the pic).
18 months after the pic was taken it still looks exactly like this:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 54,,0,1.87


I could list another 10 of the top of my head in the Dundalk and surrounding areas alone. There's A LOT. Might do it later this evening if i have time.

With the exception of two lonely flags, there's a lot of white in the nearest counties to Dublin i.e. Meath, Kildare and Wicklow. Mirrorball has just added some for Louth though.
