- Twenty two-bed two-storey houses.
- Five three-bed two-storey houses.

Minister Murphy congratulated Wicklow County Council on bringing this scheme to Kilbride Lane and its commitment to the wider development programme under Rebuilding Ireland.
“The recently announced social housing target for Wicklow over the course of 2018-2021 sets an ambitious task to deliver over 1,200 additional homes under build, acquisition and leasing schemes. Here today, I am reassured that the Council are committed, energised and mobilised to deliver on that ambition and I want to reiterate that my Department and the relevant stakeholders are here to assist and support in realising that task,” said the Minister.
