The Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage met the new residents of the recently completed Clann social housing developments in Tallaght, South County Dublin.

The residents had previously been on South Dublin County Council’s housing list.

The neighbouring schemes, run by Clann, the age-friendly offering of Clúid Housing, are composed of 40 one and two-bed bungalows.

“We’ve partnered with South Dublin County Council to bring more much-needed age-friendly homes to the area,” said Brian O’Gorman, CEO of Clúid Housing.

“These homes, along with the 85 new homes in Sallymills, Clondalkin, which were just completed, and 81 in The Weir, Tallaght, which are due to be completed soon, will bring the number of age-friendly homes Clúid has developed with South Dublin County Council to a total of 206.” 

“A key objective of the South Dublin Age Friendly County Strategy is to provide appropriate housing options for our ageing population using best practice in location, design, management and supports, and to assist older people to live independently for longer within their communities,” said Mayor of South Dublin, Councillor Alan Edge.

“These developments have very successfully delivered on that for older people who are right-sizing from existing private and social homes locally as well as housing applicants, and I wish all the new residents of both Maplewood and Fernwood many happy and successful times in their new homes.”
