Senator Frank Feighan has welcomed funding approval of €1,422,600 to purchase and refurbish 12 houses in Boyle for the provision of social housing.
“I am delighted that the Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy has given Roscommon County Council the funding go-ahead to refurbish 12 houses at Silveroe Meadow Estate in Boyle. The new homes will comprise 6 x 3 Bed Houses and 6 x 4 Bed Houses.
“This funding commitment is clear evidence that the Government is helping the county council to address the social housing shortage.
“Part of the Government’s housing strategy is to bring vacant and under-utilised housing stock back into use for housing purposes – and I look forward to these houses being made available by the council to those in need as soon as possible.”
