The information sought is not readily available in the format requested and its compilation would involve a disproportionate amount of time and work. However, details of the official engagements attended by myself and the current Ministers of State in my Department, including events of the kind referred to, are published in the form of Ministerial Diaries on my Department's website at the following link: www.housing.gov.ie/corporate/transparency-data/transparency-data.

Details of the official engagements of my predecessor, Deputy Simon Coveney, are archived but are also available on my Department's website at a separate link -

On the general issue of progress on the delivery of social housing build projects brought forward by local authorities and Approved Housing Bodies under Rebuilding Ireland, my Department publishes quarterly updates in the form of a Construction Status Report, which includes project and project stage details across all local authority areas. The most recent report, which sets out the position at end 2018, is available on the Rebuilding Ireland website at the following link:
