Residents of north Dublin ‘millionaires row’ lose planning battle over new development

 Residents at an upmarket estate in Malahide in north Dublin known as ‘Millionaires Row’ have failed in their bid to prevent a new nearby residential scheme getting the green light. This follows An Bord Pleanála granting planning permission to a Hollybrook Homes subsidiary, Kinwest Ltd, for the construction of 91 homes on the grounds of Auburn House at Little Auburn and Streamstown off the R107 Malahide Road. Auburn House was the Malahide home of Mary McEvaddy, the former wife of aviation tycoon Ulick McEvaddy.
