Housing Minister visits sites set to deliver 3,000 homes to Kilkenny
By COLIN BARTLEY
HOUSING Minister Eoghan Murphy visited three developments in Kilkenny that could provide more than 3,000 new homes in the city.
The minister visited three developments in the city and county as he joined Taoiseach Leo Varadkar at the launch of the €100 million Abbey Quarter regeneration project this week.
Minister Murphy first visited the social housing site at Nuncio Park, where 50 social homes are being built. The first of these houses will be delivered in the coming months.
He then visited one of two sites providing 30 social houses in the county. Oaklee housing is building nine bungalows in Moneenroe and 21 apartments in Thomastown. These 30 homes will be allocated to the Kilkenny County Council housing list.
Minister Murphy also visited the development works currently underway in the western environs of the city, where it is expected 3,000 houses will be built over the coming years.
