WATCH: Oliver Bond Housing Conditions

Full transcript:

I attended this morning’s launch in the Oliver Bond flats of the report into respiratory health. It is disgraceful that someone living in the Oliver Bond flats has double the likelihood of suffering a respiratory illness. Promises have been made about regeneration and there has been plan after plan, yet still nothing happens in terms of regeneration.

It is not good enough that Dublin City Council has plans. The Department needs to start leaning on Dublin City Council to make sure these things can happen and to make sure the respiratory health of children growing up in Oliver Bond is not adversely affected as it is to the disgraceful levels seen in this report.

We need to step up and ensure the promises and plans are actually delivered.
