Record Home Completion Numbers Welcomed By IHBA

Your business news also includes calls to redevelop the old Ballymun Shopping Centre site.

Record home completion figures have been welcomed by the Irish Home Builders Association.

Government figures reveal 32,695 new homes were delivered last year, which exceeded the target of 29-thousand.

It was the highest number of homes built since 2008. 

Director of Irish Home Builders Association, Conor O’Connell, says there's a general acceptance the pace of completions needs to be stepped up


There are calls for the Land Development Agency to redevelop the old Ballymun shopping centre site in north Dublin.

The 50-year-old building was demolished in 2021, with the city council last year seeking bids to develop the land for retail and housing.

Fianna Fáil TD Paul McAuliffe says the LDA should take a role in progressing the plot.

The former Dublin Lord Mayor says having an empty site on a Main Street in the capital during a housing crisis isn't good enough.
