Stand Against The Vincent Byrne Site Plan


The Workers’ Party is hosting a meeting on the plans to develop 250 built-to-rent apartments in Palmerstown on the old Vincent Byrne site.

David Gardiner, Workers’ Party representative for Dublin Mid-West and Palmerstown-Fonthill, said:”Housing needs to be built as part of a wider plan including infrastructure and amenities for Palmerstown, and these should be delivered before the residential development. This simply isn’t the case with the plan.”

“The plan is another cash grab by developers and landlords at the expense of renters and the community. Dublin’s rental market is extortionate, high-cost housing with a lack of facilities is no solution.”

“Join us on Facebook Live on Saturday, July 11th at 7.30pm as we discuss our reasons for objecting to this plan.”
