The Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH) welcomes today’s publication by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government of social housing delivery in 2018. Commenting on the figures for 2018, ICSH CEO Dr. Donal McManus said, “Today’s figures demonstrate that housing associations (AHBs) are continuing to scale-up housing delivery working in partnership with local authorities and the private sector.
