Local Fine Gael councillor Dan McSweeney said: "The need for housing in Patrickswell has become extremely evident like all communities across the city and county, the proposed incremental purchase scheme would enable those to purchase their own home at a reduced rate and finally have a place they can call their own."

"Overall this is a welcome move by Limerick City and County Council to explore all options for the provision of housing and to ensure the correct mix on tenure within Patrickswell, this is a scheme that I have worked on over the last number of months with Limerick Council the results from this registration of interest will guide Limerick City and County Council to provide a scheme which is suitable for our community," he added.

In return for registering an interest, one person will win a €50 One4All voucher.

The closing date to register your interest falls on Monday, June 28, 2021, with the winner contacted the following day.
