Statistical information for the full year 2018 has been published and is available at: http://rebuildingireland.ie/news/minister-eoghan-murphy-publishes-breakdown-of-social-housing-delivery-in-2018-on-a-local-authority-basis/.
To the end of 2018, 423 homes had been delivered under the rapid delivery programme. 22 of these were delivered in 2016, increasing to 186 social homes delivered in 2017 and 215 in 2018. Since the programme's inception, some 40 projects have been added to the pipeline and will deliver over 1,100 homes out to 2021. Some 220 of these are expected to be delivered in 2019.
