No sites in Cavan or Monaghan have been identified as part of second phase of modular units for Ukrainian Refugees.
The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth confirmed to Northern Sound News that work is currently ongoing to identify the second phase of sites for the rapid build programme.
A department spokesperson confirmed that currently they are no sites in Cavan or Monaghan identified for this next phase of housing Ukrainian Refugees in the country.
The first phase is well underway with families moving into units in Cavan Town in March of this year.
The department confirmed to Northern Sound News last week that the Farnham Road location in Cavan would cost 8.4 million euros for 30, 2 bed units. The costs includes construction, delivery and installation of the 30 units and all the site enabling works.
A department spokesperson said it should be noted that the site enabling costs include significant site work including services which will be available beyond the period used by Ukrainian families.
Contingency planning continues and no stone has been left unturned when it comes to procuring accommodation. Emergency, contingency accommodation is also being sourced by repurposing large sporting and other facilities to provide shelter the department spokesperson added.
The Department of intergradation also said due to a severe shortage of available accommodation, tented accommodation is currently being used at Knockalisheen. The priority must remain on providing shelter. The tented options previously in place in Athlone and Tralee will remain decommissioned and will not return to use
