Banks have an important role to play in addressing Irelands social housing shortage.  Thats according to the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH), which is hosting a major finance conference in Limerick.<br />
<br />
At the event, the Council called for Government to facilitate greater levels of lending by banks and other fin uncial institutions for social housing projects.  According to Donal McManus, Executive Director of the ICSH, lending for such projects is low-risk, long-term and sustainable.  "Government funding for social housing was drastically cut over the past five years," said Mr McManus.  Buth there are 90,000 households on waiting lists for social housing, and public fusing alone will not resolve the issue."<br />
