Photograph: Gareth Chaney/Collins PhotosThe Government has said it hopes to accommodate 2,000 Ukrainian refugees in 500 modular homes by the end of the year.

Mr O’Gorman said the modular units will be spread around the country but will be close to, or in, urban areas. Mr O’Gorman said that the Office of Public Work plans that the first of the units would be on site in early November 2022 with the programme being completed in 2023. He said it was an ambitious but achievable time frame. He said that local authorities would be given “appropriate planning exemptions” to ensure speedy delivery.

Agree, we are a nation of complainers. No matter what positive moves are made there are a tribe of whingers on the side lines.

That's great.What about our homeless misfortunes on the streets in sleeping bags ?

Planing law exceptions for state actors but not private individuals=state Discrimination against private citizen as long as there is no referendum by popular demand state is unchecked +td is on 80k/yr risk free Why are state payments not divided equally between all citizens

Any modular homes for Irish people or those in direct Provision?

Shame on you

How long exactly are these people staying

Any news on housing our own homeless or do we just ignore and hope it will go away?

Second class citizen in my own country. Government boosting the construction industry yet again. And the tax payers are paying the price.

And we can't do this for Irish homeless people ? Why not ? What's so special about Ukrainians? Better than Irish ? Better than all other immigrants

It gets worse each day

Any news on the Irish homeless are do we just keep ignoring that issue?

Great to see the Ukrainian’s everywhere benefiting from Irish tax payers money! When Ireland’s own children can’t afford housing and our homeless are ignored and left to die on the streets. The Great Reset and Building Back Better, is a lot better for some than others! 🤬

Isn't that lovely for them

Ghetto on the way

Scandalous & our daughter & friends med & nursing students paying 2.500 a month for a dump of a house & unable to come home for summer as they are working to keep it for autumn:(

Where's that article OBrien

Will Irish people or other Refugees be allowed to be accomodated here also if they are homeless or in need?

The Government played the International Stage without any consideration of Accommodation, Language or Education. Obviously they were not aware of the Housing Crisis and the Homeless situation in the State.

And if it’s good enough for the Ukrainians it should be good enough for our homegrown housing waiting list who have turned down far better properties….


The government of this country really hate their own people. And meanwhile in Ukraine their premier league is going ahead this year which goes to show what a scam the 'war' and 'refugees' really are.

Have any Ukrainian refugees been housed in the red cross pledge program outside of the rte scope of south Dublin and Wicklow ?

Should be expanded for tens of thousands of Irish residents. Ironically, offer this to Irish people and you’ll have a backlash of whinging in the Twitter comments like “modular isn’t good enough for us. It’s too far away from XYZ. Why are they treating us like refugees 😭'

No Irish need apply.

Can our own homeless be included also .

Yet when young Irish people want to buy a spit of land and install a modular home they’re denied planning permission. But anyways keep voting for FF/FG. Making the same retarded mistake over and over again is surely going to end up making your lives better this time.

Don't worry Paddy. Remember, wear your 😷 take your poisons 💉 and keep 'voting'.👍🏻

If you are Irish, not good enough.

Hang on a min. Ukrainians were well able to fly back to their homes for Easter. And how do this shower of shites know the ear will still going on? What about the 90 billion Zelensky got. What’s he doing with it. Should he not be trying to relocate them somewhere else

When are the modular houses for the Irish homeless being built! 10,000 families and counting houses needed where’s the plans for them? Does Klaus not approve of housing our own?

Only Ukrainian refugees? Not other refugees? Or others in need of accommodation?

no room beside all the do gooders in D4 and killiney as always
