Speaking at the Seanad - Do we have a housing crisis or is it actually a crisis of lack of homes? Sen. Róisín Garvey
With over 200,000 empty houses in Ireland we surely need to look at existing stock and upgrade it so it can play its very important part in increasing home supply.
There are over 5,000 vacant dwellings in Clare alone. 80 of those are vacant Council Houses.
Clear Data and the right mix of incentives could turn large numbers of empty houses into homes much quicker than building.
