The most recent resident to join this new community is Paddy Howard who took up residence in March of this year. Prior to this Paddy spent 29 years living in a flat located in Kildare Town.
Paddy says: “When I received the keys to my home in Droimnin it was like winning the lotto. I couldn’t believe that I would finally have a garden of my own and couldn’t wait to get started. It has been a dream come true,” says Paddy.
“Everyone here has put their own stamp on their gardens, and we have worked together on the communal area too. We have great chats and a laugh, and it has worked wonders for my health. I am delighted to have such a lovely home and to be surrounded by great neighbours who have become good friends,” added Paddy.
A handmade wishing well, fairy garden, mural adorned sheds and outdoor clocks which will be set according to London, Paris and New York time are some of the beautiful fixtures to feature in the gardens.
“It’s like a little piece of heaven and we are not finished yet,” said Paddy.
