With the support of the Citizens Information Board, the housing group launched the booklet “Social Housing Rights Explained”. The booklet, a collaboration by the housing group, provides information to tenants, prospective tenants and supporting service providers on housing issues and information on where they can get further support. It also outlines the legal responsibilities of local authorities.

The housing group comprises Ballymun Community Law Centre, Barnardos, CAN – Community Action Network, Focus Ireland, the Irish Traveller Movement Law Centre, Mercy Law Resource Centre, Northside Community Law Centre (now CLM Northside) and the Public Interest Law Alliance. The informal group meets on a monthly basis to share information and consider matters of housing law and policy relevant to their work. The group also collaborates on projects such as this booklet where appropriate.

Speaking at the launch were the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Andrew Montague and Ms. Jan O'Sullivan T.D., Minister for Housing and Planning. Other speakers included Frank Murphy, Solicitor with Ballymun Community Law Centre, Clare Naughton, Solicitor with CLM Northside and Sinead Martin, a local authority tenant from Dolphin House and member of the Rialto Rights in Action group.
