This afternoon.

Eoin English, in The Irish Examiner, reports that the Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy responded to criticism of the Government’s response to the housing crisis by Fr Peter McVerry.

Mr English reported:

Eoghan Murphy warned that the State can’t just “throw up houses” overnight and must consider how to build communities too.

…“When we build a home today, we want it to last for 100-years,” he said.

“So we have to think, are we building it in the right place, to the right standards and specifications?”
