The Irish Home Builders Association (IHBA) hosted its Annual Housing Lunch this year for members on September 21
in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin.

Following lunch, Ronan Lyons, Associate Professor in Economics in Trinity College gave an informative presentation on the economics surrounding housing supply in the Dublin market, highlighting the fact that the latest information available suggests that Ireland likely needs to build 42,000 – 62,000 new homes per year.

There was a great turnout of over 225 members and industry stakeholders, with plenty of positive engagement and feedback.

“We thank all those who supported the event and look forward to seeing you all next year,” the IHBA said.
