About Túath Housing
In Old Irish, Túath primarily means people, tribe or clan. In other Old Irish contexts, Túath refers to place or territory. In Modern Irish, Túath’s meaning is countryside. Túath’s use in language was for a place as well as for the people who lived in the locality and for people who shared a common identity and allegiance. In modern terms its meaning is a community. All these meanings are central to our core values.
Túath’s aim is to provide long-term, safe, quality housing at best value whilst locally building mixed, sustainable communities. Túath is primarily a service organisation, housing people in need and managing homes whilst responding to, engaging with and involving local people to make social housing work. Our core business is managing homes in a sustainable way, allowing people and families to peacefully enjoy, live and settle within communities. The association has won a number of awards for its housing schemes in recent years.
The association currently provides and manages over 4,000 social homes. The association mainly provides general needs and family housing in rural and urban areas, but we also provide supported housing for the elderly and people with special needs.
Túath is a not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee, and an approved voluntary housing association. The association is governed by its Memorandum and Articles of Association, and is run by a Management Board, comprised of volunteers from professional backgrounds in law, design and construction, property and finance etc. Board members donate their services and time for free. Túath was initially established in the Republic in 2000 and is approved for voluntary housing, under Section 6 of the Housing (Misc Provisions) Act 1992, for the purposes of the Housing Act 1966-2009. Túath is registered with the DOEHLG, has charitable status and is a member of the Irish Council for Social Housing.
