Dublin City Council has selected five sites to house Ireland’s first modular homes.
According to RTÉ 22 are to be delivered by the end of the year with another 128 to be fast-tracked soon after.
The prefabricated houses will be used to provide emergency accommodation for homeless families.
The five sites are Poppintree in Ballymun, Mourne Road in Crumlin, Belcamp Avenue in Coolock, St Helena’s drive in Finglas and Cherry Orchard in Ballyfermot.
It is not yet clear how many homes will go on the proposed sites.
The locations are contained in a report prepared by the council and seen by RTÉ news.
In the report the council also says that families placed in these temporary homes will be assigned a support team to assist them in finding long term accommodation.
The tenants will also have to pay some form of rent.
The report also says that the units could be used in the long term as standard social housing or student accommodation.
The matters are due to be discussed at a meeting of the council tomorrow.
