The incoming president of the Dublin Chamber will warn of the effect of housing, infrastructure and skill shortages on Dublin’s growth at the organisation’s AGM dinner this evening.

Siobhan O’Shea will caution against delaying the capital city’s growth at the event, with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar set to attend alongside representatives of 600 businesses.

O’Shea will cite constraints on housing growth in Dublin and the delayed delivery of major public infrastructure projects like MetroLink and Dart Plus, as well as Dublin’s water supply and the question of safety in the city.
