It has been described as the most expensive and the most scenic Traveller accommodation in the country.

Dun Laoghaire county council is planning to house Travellers in an old machinery depot on Mount Anville Road in south Dublin. The site has views of Dublin Bay and houses in the area are on sale for over €2 million.

Despite objections from local residents, the scheme was voted through at a council meeting earlier this year.
