Peter McVerry Trust, has commenced work on its latest regeneration project in Limerick City. The new project will see the redevelopment of the former Office of Public Works building at 2 – 3 Lower Mallow Street, into 12 single-bed apartments for people on the local social housing waiting list.
Minister for Housing Darragh O’Brien was in attendance to officially commence work on the project which has been made possible thanks to the charity’s partnership with Limerick City and County Council.
In 2022, Peter McVerry Trust supported over 12,000 people nationally, including over 400 people in Limerick who availed of housing and resettlement services.
Peter McVerry Trust currently manages over 113 homes in Limerick city and county and will shortly launch the first 14 homes in its modular home project in Delmege Park, Moyross.
CEO Pat Doyle said “We’re delighted to be commencing this city-centre regeneration project which will provide 12 high quality homes to people from Limerick City. The site, in the heart of Limerick’s Georgian Core, is another example of the work we’re doing to deliver sustainable housing solutions by bring back vacant properties as social housing.”
“We’ve been working in Limerick since 2016, and in partnership with our colleagues in Limerick City and County Council, we’ve increased delivery of social housing schemes across the county. This includes securing and delivering more one-bedroom homes for single people impacted by homelessness, but also our work with Limerick Regen in Moyross and Southill were we are working to deliver homes for families as well.”
