Past ICSH Event
Reflecting on the work of the ICSH during 2017 and in the years to come issues that were raised included the challenges facing housing associations and the ICSH as membership bodyin relation to the CSO/Eurostat reclassification of housing associations as part of the local government sub-sector. Also, the recurring concerns facing our smaller (Tier 1) members around long-serving voluntary board members and the problem of succession and governance were also raised. Minister Eoghan Muprhy addressed members in attendance and spoke of the housing association sector as critical to the delivery of social housing under Rebuilding Ireland.
The ICSH would like to salute this year’s winners as champions in the social housing sector, exemplifying the dedication and resilience of those working to provide affordable homes in Ireland.
