New CSO figures on home completions for 2022 indicate there were twenty thousand eight hundred and seven builds in the first nine months of this year.
Nationally, the statistics point to a greater total than what was achieved for the whole of 2021, which was twenty thousand five hundred and sixty.
Cavan Monaghan Fianna Fail TD, Deputy Brendan Smith says these latest figures are "heartening".
However, Taoiseach Micheál Martin has admitted the Government's housing targets won't be enough.
It's estimated a total of twenty-five thousand homes will be completed this year but he says it should be 33,000.
