TWENTY-FIVE HOMES will be built as part of a new project in Ballymun.

The €4.6million funding required to build the homes has been granted by Minister for Housing, Willie Penrose.

This move was welcomed by Labour Party TD for Dublin North West, John Lyons, who commented:

Following a visit to Ballymun with me yesterday, Minister for Housing Willie Penrose announced this funding to start work on what is known as the Coultry 6 development.
These 25 homes will allow for further de-tenanting of the original flats which is very welcome news for those waiting on new homes. They will also complete the redevelopment around Coultry Park, to take another step towards finishing the Ballymun Regeneration project.

The Minister was shown around the remaining Sillogue blocks and the Sillogue 4 development, where works are underway to remove pyrite.

During yesterday’s visit the Minister also reaffirmed his commitment to completing the regeneration project and Deputy Lyons said this funding “is evidence of his commitment”.
