We found out last week that our estate (neighborhood, in US English) is going to be expanding soon – the builder recently got permission to build 277 new homes. Looks like we could have quite a few new neighbours before too long! And it won’t stop there: Cork County Council has big plans to basically double the size of Carrigtwohill in the coming years because it is well located, has strong industries, and already has good transportation links to Cork city. Even more new neighbours!
