Num­ber of va­cant dwellings

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – Count­ing the pre­cise num­ber of va­cant dwellings scarcely mat­ters (News, Septem­ber 14th).

Just 5 per cent of the po­ten­tially 183,312 va­cant homes (Cen­sus 2016) is more than the to­tal num­ber of new homes likely to be com­pleted in 2017. – Yours, etc,
