Back on the site today, it has been a while. This is my first property development. We have 8 homes here closing in on finish. 3 bedroom houses, designated for families that currently reside in hotels around the capital, without a home to call their own. But not for long. Through the storm comes the sun! Walking around this land and these homes today, meeting all the neighbors, knowing that soon there will be families living here, creating their own memories, and building back their lives, gives me great pride! Ireland forever! Ireland first! Ireland always!
A spokesperson for Dublin City Council told The Herald it wasn’t aware of the development and isn’t involved in any housing development with Mr McGregor.
Meanwhile, according to Dublin Live, homeless campaigner Anthony Flynn has welcomed the news of the build but claimed that Conor McGregor needs to clarify if this is private development.
Speaking to the outlet he said: “News that Mr McGregor is building homes is welcome, as is news of any housing builds. Clarification on whether this is a private enterprise such as the likes of a vulture fund project or if these units will be a not for profit project should be clarified.”
