The population of Rathangan, the Kildare town close to the Bog of Allen, and the number of transient workers housed in temporary camps swelled during the 1940s, when turf-cutting was stepped up to compensate for the loss of coal from abroad during the Second World War.
The subsequent slump in turf harvesting led to a decline in Rathangan's fortunes, but the revival of Ireland's economy in the 1990s and the extension of the M7 through nearby towns like Kildare and Monasterevin sparked a housing boom in the town.
Last year, Thoval Properties launched Temple Mills in Rathangan. A second phase, consisting of 10 three-bed and four-bed semi-detached homes, is being released this weekend. Prices start at €239,950 for a three-bed semi-detached style, which spans between 1,106 sq ft and 1,150 sq ft, and at €260,000 for a four-bed semi measuring between 1,280 sq ft and 1,370 sq ft. For a limited time, the prices include a fit-out of carpets, tiling, flooring and kitchen appliances.
The A-rated properties are equipped with an air-to-water heat pump system and high-output radiators, and commuters can use the M7 or rail service from Kildare or Newbridge.
Viewings at Temple Mills will be held between 11am and 1pm tomorrow.
