A significant number of families in North Offaly are waking up in new accommodation this morning.
They've all been allocated to people waiting on Offaly County Council's waiting list.
Tuath already manages 71 homes in the County and currently has over 6,800 homes in management nationwide catering for over 19,000 people, with a strong pipeline to deliver a further 1,800 new homes throughout 2021.
Sean O’Connor, CEO of Tuath stated:
“We are delighted to be working with Offaly County Council to provide new social homes in the County. It is fantastic to see this collaborative effort resulting in 27 families moving into their forever homes today. We will continue to work in partnership with local authorities nationwide to deliver more homes to more people.”
Cllr. John Carroll, Cathaoirleach of Offaly County Council joined with Cllr. John Foley, Chairperson of the Municipal District of Edenderry in welcoming the development and wished all the families well in their new homes and in building their community together. Anna Marie Delaney, Chief Executive of Offaly County Council acknowledged the role played by Approved Housing Bodies in helping to deliver quality social housing for those on the Council’s Social Housing list.
Mr. Barry O'Leary, Chief Executive Officer of Housing Finance Agency commented
“The HFA is very pleased to support the important development of these fantastic homes at Killane Court, which will provide 27 families in the Edenderry area with the certainty and comfort of having their own place to live. The availability of low cost, long term fixed rate finance from the HFA was an important component in making the project viable and the HFA will continue to support the strong growth in activity by Tuath and other approved housing bodies across the country.”
