If you are interested in being part of Cloughjordan Co-Housing or wish to find out more about us please contact us.

AIMS AND MOTIVATIONS

Our vision is a Co-housing Co-op in Cloughjordan Ecovillage that is affordable, collectively owned and embraces a way of living that has a low impact on the environment, strengthens our personal and shared resilience and nurtures our own and our community’s well-being.

Cloughjordan Co-Housing was born from a need for smaller, more affordable housing with

shared facilities in Cloughjordan Ecovillage, an award-winning sustainable community in the Irish rural town of Cloughjordan in Tipperary.

We are a small group of people – some of whom have invested in the Ecovillage and for

various reasons have not been able to progress, and a number of others who wish to live here but cannot afford to buy a site and build. So together we are exploring cohousing as a communal way to create a housing solution for ourselves and others to live in the Cloughjordan Ecovillage.

AIMS AND MOTIVATIONS

Common Ground CoHousing is a pioneering housing initiative based in Bray, County Wicklow. With 35 adult members making up 25 households, we are a diverse group striving to create a sustainable, affordable and vibrant community. Drawing inspiration from our mentors LILAC Leeds UK we aim to establish the first Mutual Home Ownership Society in Ireland, which will provide secure, affordable, and flexible housing for our members. It is our hope to progress CoHousing in Ireland and promote its practical, social, economic and environmental benefits. We believe that our model of living is a genuine solution to both the housing and climate crises in Ireland.  Already we are documenting our journey with the aim to provide interested groups with a template that they can follow to emulate our achievements. We hope that our example will establish a new paradigm for housing, living and sustainability in the State.

AIMS AND MOTIVATIONS

‘Hope and Homes’ is an initiative of Galway City Partnership that aims to engage people in the process of building their own homes. People will be involved in the construction of their own homes while sharing and learning crafts and skills that will be useful both now and into the future. The involvement of communities and potential residents in the construction and design of their homes fosters community spirit which will outlast any short term benefit. “Hope and Homes” will focus on the security and well being that living in an active community offers.
