I spoke in the Dáil this week about the Land Development Agency Bill 2021. This Bill will accelerate the rollout of housing across the country which will ease the current housing pressure.
I focused in particular on two former Military Barracks – Devoy Barracks, Naas and Columb Barracks, Mullingar. Housing should be provided to Military families on the social housing list in lieu of both of these sites.
Finally, I also spoke about the dereliction in the Curragh camp and the need for proper investment to address the problem. Additional funding is required to provide adequate housing for Military families in the camp.
