Dublin Central Sinn Féin welcome plans for new senior citizen housing in Cabra

21 January, 2015


The Dublin Central Sinn Féin team has welcomed plans for new senior citizen housing in Dunmanus Housing Complex, Cabra.

Speaking today about the plans Cllr McGrattan said,

“The announcement of this new senior citizen housing plan provides a great opportunity for older people to live within their own communities. I have asked that local labour from the Cabra area be used in the building of the development. It would be great to see local jobs for local people.”

Dublin Central TD Mary Lou McDonald also welcomed the announcement, stating that,

“I welcome the long awaited Dunmanus Housing development.  This housing complex will ensure that our senior citizens in Cabra have access to housing in their local area near family, friends and supports.   I would like to see a solid commitment from the developers that they will use a social clause which will utilise a local work force throughout the construction of this site and beyond. Cabra can provide many skilled tradespeople and the young apprentices needed to be part of the development.”
