On Monday, Fr. Peter McVerry confirmed that the housing crisis is worse this Christmas than last Christmas and that the Rebuilding Ireland plan is not working. Those were his words. Cavan County Council held an annual meeting with the chief executive on Monday. Those at the meeting confirmed to me that the council target for new houses for 2019 is 25. This is against a backdrop of hundreds of people waiting for houses. They have been waiting for years in some cases.

What is the Government plan for next year to facilitate our local authorities? They do not seem to be able to deliver. They seem to need help and support. How is the Government going to facilitate them? The total of 25 new houses for 2019 is abysmal.
