The Housing Alliance are delighted to announce the appointment of Anne-Marie McNally as Executive Director. The Housing Alliance is a collaboration of six of Ireland’s largest Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs).
The Housing Alliance was formed to promote the delivery of social and affordable housing by larger AHBs, to address barriers and challenges to delivery, and to promote strong professional approaches to housing management. Anne-Marie’s lived experience of social housing, her work on major housing projects in Dublin and her political experience on national housing policy place her in a unique position to lead the Housing Alliance through this important time in housing policy formation in Ireland. We are looking forward to working in partnership together with Anne-Marie.
Anne-Marie McNally joins the Housing Alliance from her role as Political Communications Director for the Social Democrats political party. She is a former journalist, inner-city project worker and strategic political adviser. She has been to the forefront of social and economic policy issues in Ireland throughout her career. Anne-Marie also brings significant communications expertise to the role, holding a First Class Hons MA in Political and Public Communications from DCU.
The Housing Alliance members are Clúid Housing, Circle Voluntary Housing, Co-operative Housing Ireland, Oaklee Housing, Respond and Tuath Housing. Members work collaboratively on a range of issues, while also retaining their independent status.
