Homeless centre in Limerick to create 40 jobs

FORTY construction jobs will be created in Limerick over the next 18 months, as the Brother Stephen Russell House is set to be demolished and replaced by a new €4m centre. Br Russell House on Mulgrave Street in Limerick has been providing care for homeless men in the city for more than three decades, but with demand for homeless accommodation rising in recent years, the service exceeded capacity on a regular basis and the building is no longer fit for purpose.

The house has been run and managed by Novas Initiatives since 2005, who received €1.75m from millionaire philanthropist J.P. McManus’ golf classic to help with the costs of the new development.
