Many thanks to Patrick Costello

Many thanks to Patrick Costello for discussing the issue of inadequate housing conditions in Oliver Bond House during topical questions in the Dail yesterday.

82.8 % of households are impacted by damp and condensation issues
55% of households have received medical advice that damp, mould or sewage in their home contributes to ill health in their family.

People cannot be expected to wait 15 years for housing conditions to be brought up to a standard in line with their basic rights.

The Department of Housing need provide an undertaking that they will support DCC to carry out an independent survey of conditions and conduct ameliorative improvements in line with report findings ASAP.
