Town and Country

Túath have surpassed the 500 homes mark with the delivery of 565 social homes in 2016 throughout the country in collaboration with 21 local authorities.

The provision of homes nationally ranged from second hand bungalows for the elderly in Cavan to high end city centre apartments in Dublin Docklands, both purchased from receivers.

€72 million was spent in acquiring the new homes using State funding and private finance from the Housing Finance Agency (HFA) and the European Investment Bank (EIB). The homes provided were for families, elderly, single people, the disabled, the homeless and a number of homeowners unable to maintain their mortgages.

Long Term Homes Secured

In addition the association secured more than 100 homes occupied by tenants who faced eviction as receivers were in the process of selling homes on the open market. Túath, in collaboration with local authorities, intervened and acquired these properties using a combination of funding from the State and the Housing Finance Agency (HFA).

Sean O’Connor- CEO said that “Túath would seek to deliver even more social homes in 2017 and the years ahead through innovation and collaboration with the private and public sectors. It is essential that ordinary working class people who cannot provide for themselves in the open market are given hope that they will be able to secure a place they really can call home”.
