Unused buildings, including parochial houses, are to be sold off by the Catholic Church in Dublin.
The Herald reports church land will also be put on the market, with a property expert being brought in to work on the portfolio that could bring in millions of euro.
It comes as the Archdiocese of Dublin merges parishes because of a drop in church attendances and a shortage of priests, leaving a surplus of residences.
The change has already been made in south Dublin in Donnybrook, Booterstown and Foxrock.
The plan follows submissions to Dublin city council's draft development plan that saw the church ask for church lands to be rezoned to allow for housing developments into the future.
