As we journey on here at Sligo Housing Action Group, pushing for change in Sligo’s’ derelict & vacant housing landscape we encounter the back stories.
There are people working in the background trying to make a change.
One case is Ronan Gilroy and the Savoy Cinema. The Savoy is not an example of vacant housing but of a vacant site.
Ronan Gilroy has been soldiering away for years trying to get his community led housing project off the ground. Based on the logic that older generations / empty nesters would happily downsize if there were decent options available, and therefore free up family size homes for families, Ronan is onto a winner.
He should be given all the help and support he needs.
