There are concerns in Carlow that over 20 new social houses for Ballon are all three-bedroom with a "number of two-bedroom"  housing applicants on the list in that area. 

Co-Operative Housing Ireland are due to deliver 22 social housing units in 2020 and Cllr John Pender said the houses are all three-bedroom. 

He raised the matter at the October meeting of Tullow Municipal District. 

"There are a number of two-bedroom [applicants] on the list, will they be considered", he asked. 

Housing Officer at the Council, Josephine Kavanagh, said everybody would be considered but then accepted Cllr Pender's point that the two-bedroom applicants would be considered "over-accommodated" by a three-bedroom house. 

"We can look for alternatives," she added.
