A North Kildare TD says it is shocking that the Government still can't provide information when the review of income eligibility for social housing will be completed.

Fianna Fáil TD,  Frank O'Rourke said:“The review was commissioned in 2018, here we are five months into 2019 and there is no sign of it. Minister Damian English said recently that he hopes the report will be completed in the summer, but Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy isn’t giving any indication what-so-ever as to when we can expect it."

He says that the Government are effectively condemning people to not being able to avail of social housing and at the same time those people have no chance whatsoever of being able to get a mortgage to buy their own home.
