The news that 200 modular homes are to be built by April to accommodate Ukrainian refugees has been welcomed as a 'really good idea'.
So far over 65 thousand Ukrainian people have arrived in Ireland and over 54 thousand of them are seeking accommodation from the State.
Sligo Leitrim TD Marian Harkin, says it's good progress that the new rapid-build units are going up in Cavan, Sligo, Thurles, Claremorris and Mahon in Cork.
However, Deputy Harkin says other options must also be considered.
Meanwhile 30 modular homes that are being built to house Ukrainian Refugees on a site in Cavan Town is set to cost 8.4 million euros.
The Department of Integration confirmed to Northern Sound FM in recent weeks that the 30 rapid build 2 bedroom units will cost a average of 280,000 euros each when completed.
According to a new report out this morning in the Sunday Times Property Price Guide. The median price for a house in the County of Cavan is 175,000 euros.
Ukrainian families are set to move into the purpose built modular housing estate in Cavan towards the end of March.
The development of 30 modular homes on the Farnham Road in Cavan is expected to house up to 120 Ukrainians.
The Cavan Town development will consist of 30 single storey semi- detached units each with 2-bedrooms at 45 meters squared.
