Minister of State for Housing Damien English was on hand, and on site, to launch the Rebuilding Ireland - Action Plan for Housing and Homeless roadshow at Lord Edward Street in Limerick city.
Rebuilding Ireland aims to tackle Ireland's housing crisis by increasing the amount of social units to at least 25,000 annually by 2020.
Rebuilding Ireland is founded on a five-pillar plan which will address homelessness, accelerate social housing, build more homes, improve the rental sector and utilise existing housing.
Rebuilding Ireland will use 1,500 rapid-delivery units to tackle the social housing crisis.
The minister was joined Conn Murray, chief executive of Limerick City and County Council, at the launch.
