first_imgTwitter Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick county house prices to rise 5% in 2021 Facebook Mortgage payment break for local authority home loan borrowers will be extended by a further three months WhatsApp Linkedin ACTIVISTS took to the street of Limerick on Saturday, February 23, to protest over the growing housing crisis.The recently formed Limerick Housing Action (LHA) group organised a march that gathered at People’s Park and made its way to City Hall on Merchants Quay, where organisers and members of other action groups spoke to the crowd of almost fifty people.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Recent homeless figures have shown that more than 290 people were homeless in Limerick at the end of last year.A spokesperson for the group  said that for many people the housing crisis isn’t about statistics.“Long before the numbers are published in the papers and in the reports, or in the Dáil debates, we’ve already seen them. You’ve seen them on our streets in our homes and on the worried faces of our friends and family.”She said the movement was formed by a “group of concerned community members that came together” with a common goal of supporting those affected by the housing crisis and to “take collective action to demand change”.“I don’t think I’m being too dramatic when I say that probably everyone here is affected by this, the housing crisis or at least know someone who’s affected.”“By coming out today, you have shown that the people in Limerick aren’t going to take it any longer. Underneath it all, we know that there are only two types of people in the housing struggle – the people that profit from it,  and the people who suffer from it.“We also know that there is ultimately more of us than there is of them,” the spokeswoman explained.
