Social housing scrapped for former BoI building

The future of the former Bank of Ireland building in Lismore is once again up in the air as this week, Waterford City and County Council have confirmed that it is no longer to be used for social housing.

News of this comes as Cllr Mairead Tobin queried the council’s intentions for the building, as she said that those in the area were led to believe that the prominent central building was to become social housing.

“Is there any movement on it? It’s just that there’s rumours abounding in Lismore that it’s actually being sold on by the council,” Cllr Tobin said.
