My Department publishes a wide range of housing and planning statistics, which includes aggregate data relating to voluntary local authority mortgage repossessions broken down by county, although a breakdown by loan type is not available. The statistics are available on my Department’s website at:http://www.environ.ie/en/Publications/StatisticsandRegularPublications/HousingStatistics/FileDownLoad,15295,en.xls by clicking “Local Authority Mortgage repossession data” under the Housing Loans contents.
