A housing project that began a decade ago and which cost almost 2 million to complete was finally unveiled in the east Cavan town of Mullagh last Sunday despite a number of setbacks along the way.
The new Sonas social housing development consists of twelve homes, which are designed specially for older people. They were built under the Capital Assistance Scheme and there was 100% funding from the Department of the Environment and administered by Cavan County Council.
