Statistics on the number of social homes constructed by local authorities and Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) are published on my Department’s website at the following link:

https://www.housing.gov.ie/housing/social-housing/social-and-affordble/overall-social-housing-provision.

These statistics are updated on a quarterly basis, with similar details for 2019 to be published as the year progresses.

The Social Housing Construction Status Report, which is published on a quarterly basis, provides a range of details on the social housing construction programme of local authorities and AHBs, including details on a scheme by scheme basis of  projects completed, which in the case of local authority projects, delivered 2,022 homes in 2018.  The latest report, covering the period up to end Q4 2018, is available on the Rebuilding Ireland website at the following link: http://rebuildingireland.ie/news/minister-murphy-publishes-social-housing-construction-status-report-for-q4-2018/.

In addition to the information set out in the report, local authorities also delivered 501 Part V new builds and refurbished over 1,700 homes under the Voids programme in 2018.
