The Minister for Housing, Eoghan Murphy has officially opened Focus Ireland’s new 31-unit social housing development built by Duggan Brothers. The new social housing development will provide homes for a number of families and individuals in the heart of Dublin City Centre.

The new build encompasses a seven storey residential apartment building including basement, external envelope with balconies, canopy installation and associated services and systems installation. Each individual apartment comprises bedrooms, dining, kitchen and storage areas.

Speaking at the event Minister Murphy said: “Under rebuilding Ireland, we are partnering with our many stakeholders to provide homes for people who are homeless and my department is always eager to fund such projects. Increasing the supply of housing is at the core of addressing our housing problems. This year we will add 10,000 new homes to our active social housing stock and we will also meet the housing needs of some 27,000 families/individuals on local authority waiting lists. I would like to wish all the new tenants many happy years in their new homes.”

Contracts Director, Eddie Cleary commented: “We were delighted to play a part in delivering this project which will provide 31 families with a safe and secure place to call home.”

Focus Ireland has provided over 500 homes in partnership with the state since 2015. It plans to deliver a total of 750 homes over the course of its current five-year plan (to 2020).
