Ballygawley is a development project for a multi-billion dollar commercial and residential project that is being developed by the developer Belmont.

It is part of a wider development project by the Irish Government, with the aim of creating a new city-centre town in north east Ireland.

The project is currently being developed in partnership with the Irish National Parks and Wildlife Service (INPWS).

Ballygowne will be the site of the new city centre, with over 3,000 houses and apartments and the construction of up to 2,000 residential units.

It will include the site that was previously home to the local council offices, the Ballyhaug County Museum, the National Museum of Ireland, the Northern Ireland Office, the Government Museum and a range of community centres and cultural institutions.

The development is set to be completed by 2021 and is expected to create more than 600 jobs.
