A lane between the two lots provides access to the third lot which comprises a 6.81 acre green field site with permission for 66 houses, mainly three-bedroom semi-detached but also including two- and four-bedroom terraced and detached houses.

It also adjoins the local GAA club and is convenient to other sports grounds and schools. Carnew is five miles from Shillelagh, 10 from Gorey and 55 miles from Dublin.
