This morning.

At the launch of cost rental housing at St Michael’s estate in Inchicore, Dublin 8.

Fine Gael TD Catherine Byrne criticised her party colleague Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy’s plans.

John Kilraine, in RTE, reports:

A new proposal would see the construction of 472 housing units, with 330 cost-rental and the remainder social housing.

Minister Murphy, speaking at a public meeting, said cost-rental provided people with rents 15-25% below market value.

…However, Ms Byrne said 70% cost-rental would not build a sustainable community.

She said affordable housing was needed instead, which would allow local young people to get on the property ladder.

She also complained about lack of consultation and the high-density of the plan.

Sinead’s cash dropping route

Sinead Casey writes:

I bought a coffee in the Lime Tree at Kilmainham Gaol Wednesday and strolled back to Inchicore [Dublin 8] guzzling away. As I reached the Black Lion [Emmet Road[  a woman ran up behind me clutching a twenty that she said I’d dropped.

I looked down and saw my purse was inverted and unzipped and there was no sign of the over €100 in cash that had been there 10 minutes previously.

Cursing my stupidity I walked back to see if I could find any more and ask in the café but all I recovered was two supermarket tokens.

Fast forward to that evening and I get a call from a lovely woman called Siobhan who’d found a wad of cash and my hospital appointment card and was wondering if I was still at the same address. All was deposited through my letterbox yesterday.

Thanks Siobhan and kudos to the people of Inchicore!
