Mayo Fianna Fàil TD Dara Calleary has announced that 20 new Social Houses are to be constructed at Polranny, Achill Sound.
Deputy Calleary said: "I am delighted to announce that the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage has issued approval to Mayo County Council for the construction of 20 social housing units at Polranny.
"The units to be constructed are 4 x 3 beds, 12 x 2 beds, 4 x 1 beds - so the development will meet a number of housing requirements in the Achill area.
"I want to thank and congratulate Cllr Paul McNamara and Mayo County Council officials for advocating this scheme and for working with me to get Department approval over the line.
"There is a shortage of housing, both private and social, in the county, and this development will help alleviate the waiting list for housing in the West Mayo area.
"I am continuing to work closely with the local authority, local councillors and the Department to secure other much-needed housing developments for Mayo."
