Poll: Is it finally time that Dublin went high-rise?

Is it time for the Irish capital to finally bite the bullet and embrace high-rise structures?

HOUSING MINISTER EOGHAN Murphy is now six weeks into the job he inherited from Simon Coveney, one of the more thankless roles in Government.

In an interview with yesterday’s Sunday Business Post, Murphy outlined something he says he sees as key to solving the property crisis being seen in the capital – the construction of high-rise properties in Dublin city centre.

“We have to go higher, particularly in Dublin city, particularly within the canals, and we have to go for an increased density,” he said.

The building of high-rises in Dublin has been a contentious subject for years – but given the sheer scale of the current housing crisis in the country, is it time for Ireland’s main city to finally bite the bullet and go higher?

We’re asking: Is it finally time that Dublin went high-rise?
