Homeless charity Focus Ireland is preparing to step in and pay a ‘materially higher’ price for 16 houses even though Limerick Council signed a contract for the homes last year for a lower price.

This newspaper has established that Limerick City and County Council willingly backed out of its lower- priced contract because the builder sought a higher value to reflect rising costs of materials and Covid-related delays.
