We are awaiting contracts now, what information has been included in the contracts package from the builder?
Has anyone had issues with the contracts sent out?
I assume there is a list of contents included and finishing details/specifications in the building?

Ideally we would want to convert the attic too but we were told they weren't convertable by the estate agent. Surely all attics are convertable?

I only got the plans from Fingal Co. Council so far. I have requested specific details for our house from the estate agent the other day but no reply yet. The link I posted on this thread previously seems to be broken and it won't allow me to upload the PDF becuase it's too big. If you search for "Rahillion Donabate" here (type it into "Location"):
http://www.fingal.ie/planning-and-bu...cationsonline/

you'll find all documents there. Click on one of the results e.g. F17A/0439 and there's a "Documents" tab at the bottom. Plans are in the "Plans Elevations and Sections" document.

We're almost certainly going to buy a 4 bed on Rahillion crescent. We have 2 kids, 4 (and a half) and 1. Does anyone looking at this estate have kids of a similar age?

Getting quite excited now.. they look great when i called out recently!!

We are about to confirm 4 bed in Rahillion Crecent and we have one 6 year old girl. Also checked with the builder, the attic will not be floored and cannot be converted because of the steel beams.

Glad to hear theres other kids moving in!! I did have a slight worry my 2 would be a bit lonely.

Are people changing kids school straight away or going to wait until next school year? My daughter is currently in junior infants.

Did anyone hear about the arson near Rahillion, The Donabate Pharmacy was up in flames. It is a bit of concern for me now. I saw the news in Independent.ie I was unable to post a link. What do you guys think ?

Im not too concerned to be honest. From what ive read online.. I dont think it was an arson attack.. just stupidity. This kind of thing happens absolutely everywhere around haloween unfortuntely, Bins set on fire etc.. it seems this particular dim wit didnt realise fire could spread. If anything this kind of thing will increase the local police presence which wouldnt hurt.

That is what I thought and I really like the Area!!. I hope this is just plain old stupidity!! also, some of the post in other threads doesn't give you confidence.

Can I ask if you live in Donabat? I am hoping to move there shortly and now I am having a really bad feeling with all this news of anti social behaviour and news of huge developments planned and not much infrastructure. I really worry I won't be able to leave my house after 7pm or so for fear of this kind of anti social behaviour? Thanks

I’ve lived in Donabate for 12 years. It’s a lovely area. We live a in a flat and have a young child so have been on the lookout for a house. It’s hard to know what the future holds for the area. We are in two minds as to whether to look elsewhere to settle. It is a great area as things stand but there is a huge amount of development planned and I’m sure there are going to on-going issues with lack of infrastructure over the next 10 years or so, so it’s a tough call. Re the anti social behaviour, there have been issues over the last year in particular. Personally I’d say it’s a small number of kids involved who are very brazen. A lot of organised fights over the summer, egging cars and houses etc. Personally I’ve never had any issue with any of the kids in the area and most of them seem grand. Thing is there are a huge amount of teenagers around and you’ll always get a few who are cocky and take things too far. Not a reflection on the area as such just demographics in my opinion. Can’t see it getting any better with the scale of development planned though. On the other hand you have lovely beaches, Newbridge Park and a really nice community that’s always working to keep the area nice.
