A whistleblower has accused one of Ireland’s biggest housing associations of operating developments that fall short of fire safety regulations, misusing public funds, and wrongly keeping construction sites open during a Covid lockdown.

A file of alleged irregularities at Co-operative Housing Ireland (CHI) was submitted to the Charities Regulator and to the Department of Housing in recent months, and in legal documents before the circuit court.
