Housing in Dublin Central is unaffordable for working people. Rents have increased by 400% and ZERO affordable homes have been built in the last nine years.  Dublin Central provides 40% of the 4,000 homeless beds in the city and the emotional, social and economic cost to individuals, families and our community is doing untold damage.   

Mary’s Track record on Housing:

  • Successfully secured approval for largest housing development in Dublin Central: 824 homes in O’Devaney Gardens, 80% social and affordable 20% private
  • Member of Dublin City Council Housing Strategic Policy Committee
  • Champion of the Vienna Housing Model in Dublin

Mary’s priorities for Housing in Dublin Central are:

  • State invests in homes, not homelessness
  • Affordable homes to both rent and buy
  • Sustainable, secure, affordable homes for all in Dublin Central
