On Wednesday, the Minister for Housing, Eoghan Murphy, in an ill judged interview on RTE Drivetime, attacked Focus Ireland for ‘misinterpreting’ his own report. The truth is they hadn’t, not at all.
We were delighted to sit down with Director of Advocacy for Focus Ireland, Mike Allen to discuss the housing crisis and how the “Focus Ireland Amendment”, an anti-homelessness amendment that calls for an end to evictions of tenants in Buy to Let properties that are bring sold or repossessed, was one solution to what is a national emergency. While the Minister was settling scores, Mike was more interested in solutions. We hope the Minister is listening.
