Last Thursday of the Month Members’ Meet-Up:  all about housing

The next “Last Thursday of the Month Members’ Meet-Up:  all about housing” will take place from 7.00pm – 8.30pm on Thursday 31 March, on zoom. 

The guest speaker will be Dr Rory Hearne, of Maynooth University, who will give an informal presentation to the Housing Linkage group, but all are welcome to come along.

Come along if you want to hear more about the housing crisis in Ireland and what PPN members can do about it.  Come along if you’re new to the PPN or a more experienced member.  Come along to meet your Housing SPC reps, and to network with other groups interested in housing issues.
