Dublin's MEP Emer Costello welcomed the news which will see 135 vacant houses in Dublin returned into liveable homes. "It seems absurd that while we have thousands of families on the housing list, we also have houses lying idle. Boarded up houses benefit no one - especially the communities in which they stand."

Emer Petition 1

Dublin's MEP Emer Costello has launched a petition today calling for plans to integrate the Dublin ambulance service into the HSE to be reconsidered.
