First time buyers scheme could severely impact Fingal – O’Reilly

14 October, 2016 - by Louise O'Reilly TD


Sinn Fein TD for Fingal Louise O’Reilly has today slammed the first time buyers’ scheme cooked up between the Government and Fianna Fáil. 

Deputy O’Reilly said:

“My office has already been contacted by families waiting to buy homes in Fingal who are gravely disappointed at the budget announcement.  They are desperate to purchase homes in our communities but cripplingly high rents mean they cannot save deposits; this scheme has simply forced up prices for new homes and far from helping them to buy is putting homes even further from reach. 

“We have the fastest growing and one of the youngest populations of any constituency. This scheme will have a severely negative impact on Fingal.”
