Abstract: We use results on the cohomology of principal congruence subgroups of $ {\text{PS}}{{\text{L}}_2}({\mathbf{Z}}[\omega ]),{\omega ^2} + \omega + 1 = 0$, to prove the existence of a large class of closed, orientable $ 3$-manifolds with virtually $ {\mathbf{Z}}$-representable fundamental groups. In particular, these manifolds have finite covers with positive first Betti number.
