New Developments in Malahide

    I was looking at Brookfield, location is great but with the new runway in the airport opening in October it looks like the estate will be right under the flight path. I’m worried it’ll be too noisy.

    Any chance you could you clarify this a bit? The developments around Kinsealy lane are in the catchment area for the Malahide Portmarnock Educate Together primary school, and the admissions policy for the community school prioritises pupils in the catchment area previously posted, who attended one of a number of feeder schools which includes MPES - there doesn't seem to be any extra weighting given to the other primary schools within Malahide.

    I'm looking into houses in this area but am not too familiar with the specific schools so I might not be fully understanding.

    That runway will be mostly takeoffs to the west. I wouldn't expect to see an awful lot of activity going east and certainly not for a few years

    I am not familiar with the MPETSS admissions policy (presumably it’s on their website) but MPET National School is not a feeder school for Malahide Community School.

    Yes it is. Have a look at the admissions policy on their website.

    The only issue would be that siblings in "catchment AND feeder" get priority so that would be a considerable chunk of the spaces gone. The rest are shared amongst the first in the family "catchment and feeder". So probably a lottery system. Hence no guarantee of a place as they are heavily oversubscribed every year.

    The MPETSS has siblings first, then catchment - no feeder schools.

    Has anyone bought in Brookfield or living in that area, and if so how are you finding it?

    Strongly considering one of the houses in the latest phase at the moment.

    Any insights into what developments are on the horizon for 2023?
