Taoiseach says more advanced construction must be used to meet housing demand
The Taoiseach says more advanced construction technology needs to be used to help meet the urgent demand for housing.
It’s after data from the Banking and Payments Federation showed rents in Ireland have risen by 82% since 2010, compared with the EU average of 18 per cent.
Head of the BPFI, Brian Hayes, says Ireland’s population has increased by half a million people in the past decade, which is putting additional pressure on the housing market.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin admits the state needs to build more homes and do so faster.
