The scheme is the charity’s first greenfield development consisting of eight one bed homes together with a small community building specifically designed for single people with the most complex needs.

    Eight 50 sqm 1-bed homes costing €1.6m or €200,000 apiece on land the PVT already owned?

    Jebus.

    The look of happiness on Mr Coughlans face tells you how much this means to him, good luck to him with it.

      Life will throw curved balls, but to some more than others. The yellow vests in Paris are setting up their own homeless shelters so do we have to do the same here in Ireland? Hard to believe things have got so much worst than two years ago. Jim Sheridan from then.

        And we are constantly being told how well the country is doing. Taxes up, unemployment down, employment up. And here we are with minister boys fiddling figures to keep numbers under 10000 homeless, disregarding hospital costs massive overruns. All hoping some new piece of news will take the spotlight off them for a while.

        Those are grim statistics SOQ and it’s only gotten far worse in the couple of years since. As a society(and I don’t just mean Ireland) we seem to have decided that homelessness and poverty are acceptable for a certain segment of the population. We have the means to feed and house everyone in the world but we don’t care enough to make it happen.
