Carlow Fine Gael TD, Pat Deering, has today (Thursday) welcomed the news of 26 new Social Housing units in Carlow. The development has been given the green light by the Minister of State for Housing, Damien English TD,

Deputy Deering said “I warmly welcome this announcement of 26 new units at Sleaty Street, Graiguecullen, Carlow. The houses are needed and the money allocated is a welcome boost to the construction industry and to the community at large.

“Twenty Six houses will be provided by Cluid Housing association, an approved housing body, in conjunction with Carlow County Council. There will be nine 2-bed houses and seventeen 3-bed houses.

“These new permanent homes are intended for people who are on the social housing list in Carlow town and will go some way to alleviate the pressure on local authority housing.
