Up to 80 new homes on the way in the wider Bagenalstown area as Carlow councillor Willie Quinn calls for holiday homes to be offered to Ukrainian refugees

The incoming houses will make a dent in the waiting list, but more are needed

Up to 80 new houses will be completed in the wider Bagenalstown area in the next couple of years.

Cllr Willie Quinn says this is very welcome news but more still needs to be done to tackle the housing crisis.

Speaking on The Way It Is last evening, Cllr Quinn also called for those who own holiday homes to offer them up to Ukrainian refugees.
