Farran Row is a Tuath Housing Direct Build project consisting of 14 new homes that have been allocated to families on the Westmeath County Council housing waiting list. The development consists of four 2 bed bungalows, funded through the Department of Housing’s CAS grant scheme, five 3 bed and five 2 bed semi-detached houses, funded via private finance from the Housing Finance Agency and a loan from the Department of Housing.

The new homes are situated within a preexisting Westmeath County Council housing estate and are a 15-minute walking distance from Mullingar town centre. The land was provided by Westmeath County Council under the low-cost sites scheme with building contractors, TH Contractors Ltd. The average cost of a home in the Farran Row development was €195,000, representing excellent value for money.
