Sinn Féin TD for Cavan-Monaghan Pauline Tully says the Government's affordable housing plan is in crisis and delivered zero affordable homes in Cavan last year.
The comments were made as newly released figures from the Department of Housing show that the Government missed its affordable housing targets by almost 60% across the State in 2022.
Deputy Tully says the Government has failed "to get a grip" on the housing crisis.
She highlighted how ordinary people across Cavan have become victim to "incompetence and poor planning".
Deputy Tully added that there are people in Cavan who are now "trapped", paying sky-high rents, living in cramped accommodation; and shut out from homeownership.
"Sinn Féin in government would stand up for people hit by the housing crisis and deliver genuinely affordable homes. The fact that two and a half years into its term of office, the Government has delivered zero homes in Cavan and only 1,007 homes across the State shows it is just not serious about tackling the affordable housing crisis," said the local TD.
