3,000 New Homes Planned for Kilkenny

Posted August 7th, 2019

Last week I visited Kilkenny to inspect some new housing projects, to take a look at a previously derelict site which is now under construction, and to launch the Abbey Quarter.

Just outside Kilkenny, a LIHAF development will provide 500 new homes in the first phase, but it is paving the way for 3,000 new homes, schools and other amenities in the near future.

On another site, 27 new apartments will be available for people on the housing list by the end of the year on a previously derelict site. Take a look here.

The Taoiseach and I launched the Abbey Quarter project as part of our urban regeneration plans under Project Ireland 2040 (details here) – protecting our past while investing in our future in a sustainable way. You can see pictures here.
