The Iveagh Trust is Ireland’s oldest provider of social housing with years of experience in delivering homes across Dublin. With over 1,000 units across Dublin City and a significant presence on the Northside, this was the Iveagh Trust’s first venture into Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
In July, the partnership resulted in the delivery of high-quality, A-rated homes, close to wonderful amenities and excellent public transport links, for 44 individuals and families. Rory Guinness, Chairman of the Trust and great-great-grandson of its founder says:
We are thrilled to see people moving into such wonderful new homes in this fantastic location. For over a century the Iveagh Trust has used the same model of on-the-ground management and a focus on people to build successful communities, and we are looking forward to carrying on that tradition in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
Our Director of Housing, Catherine Keenan, added:
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is committed to meeting our housing delivery target of 1,563 social housing units by 2021, through implementation of Rebuilding Ireland: Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness. We were delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Iveagh Trust to provide much-needed homes for families and individuals in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. We will continue to utilise the provisions of Part V to increase the level of social housing provided as an integral part of new housing developments.”
