Dual income houing policy is dangerous

The Labour party says the Government’s decision to develop a housing policy for dual income households is dangerous.


Recent reports based on CSO data found houses are affordable in just seven counties for a single worker on a typical salary.


The analysis shows a person on a median income and a 20 percent deposit can only buy a home in Sligo, Leitrim Donegal, Cavan, Longford, Mayo and Roscommon.


Nessa Cosgrove is the Labour Representative for Sligo/Leitrim says despite lower property prices locally, single people are still being priced out of the market.
