Bru Na Sionna Resident ‘Hopeful’ Dedicated Defects Agency Will Be Established

A resident of a Shannon apartment complex where serious defects have been identified is ‘hopeful’ of a dedicated State agency being established to deal with impacted properties.

A 2017 inspection of the Bru na Sionna complex identified serious fire safety defects, with the owners of the 240 apartments being faced with a combined four million euro bill to fix them.

The Construction Defects Alliance estimates 120,000 homes built during the Celtic Tiger don’t meet adequate building standards.


Bru na Sionna resident Lorraine Carew believes momentum for action on the issue is growing.
