I am well able to acknowledge the scale of the challenge and Deputy Gould should have the good grace to acknowledge where progress is being made. Progress is being made not just in Cork but all over the country. I will let the Deputy speak to Niall Ó Donnabháin, Brian Geaney or whoever in Cork City Council. They will take him through the numbers. The council is making progress, even on a like-for-like basis.

I knew all about social housing. I was delighted to grow up in a social house. It was a great opportunity and community and I owe the State a huge amount. I know what it is about and the opportunity that it provides for individuals and families. The Government has gone back to building public housing at scheme scale for the first time in a generation.
