Details in relation to dependents (typically children but may include dependent adults) are not available on a county level
Figures provided by the Minister for Housing have revealed that 71 children were homeless in the South East region - which includes Carlow - in July of this year.
Independent TD Mattie McGrath asked the Minister for the number of children in emergency housing accommodation by county.
In a written response, Minister Eoghan Murphy said: "Monthly homelessness data reports are produced by housing authorities using the Pathway Accommodation & Support System (PASS), the single integrated national data information system on State-funded emergency accommodation arrangements overseen by housing authorities.
"While these monthly reports include a breakdown of adults based on accommodation type at county level, details in relation to dependents (typically children but may include dependent adults) are not available on a county level in my Department and are a matter for the relevant housing authorities."
