Clare Fianna Fáil TD Cathal Crowe has welcomed the announcement of a total €1.2 million in funding for delivery of two affordable housing schemes in Ennis.

A sum of €550,000 will be granted towards the delivery of 11 affordable purchase homes at Acha Bhile, Lahinch Road, Ennis, while €650,000 has been awarded to the delivery of 10 affordable purchase homes at Doire na mBláth, Tulla Road, Ennis.

“This is great news for prospective homeowners in Ennis and surrounding areas,” said Deputy Crowe.

“The numbers may be small – but 21 affordable homes coming to a town of Ennis’ size is a step in the right direction.

“The Ache Bhile homes are expected to be delivered in Q4 of this year, and will be sold at rates beginning from €284,000 which is a 20% discount on local market rates; while the Tulla Road homes are to be delivered in Q2 2025 will be sold from €280,000 representing a 22% discount on local market rates.

“I’m pleased to see this announcement today and am confident that Minister Darragh O’Brien will continue to deliver for Clare.

“It’s essential that affordable housing is expanded and rolled out more widely, to ensure that those who are on the cusp of having a foot on the property ladder can secure a home of their own.

“I hope to see further positive announcements in this regard for our county in the near future.”
