In ainneoin an méid seo áfach fós tá scata mór tithe folamh fud fad na cathrach. Sé aidhm an plean seo ná aird a tharraingt ar mhéid na faibhde i measc an phobail, ach go háirithe i measc daoine áitiúla na ceantair sin. Tá ceart bunreachtúil ag daoine fothain agus sábhailteacht a bheith acu agus iad ag cur fúthu sa stáit. Tá an eagráíocht i mBlá Cliath ag súil go dtuigfidh daoine an méid sin tréan bhfeachtas seo.
