Kerry County Council says it cannot ensure social housing is given to people from the same locality.
The council was responding to a call from councillor Michael O Shea, who wanted social housing in parts of the county to be allocated to people from that community.
While acknowledging Kerry County Council has a housing list to work with, he’s asking for locals to be given preference if a social housing unit becomes available in their area.
Kerry County Council says it has to pursue choice-based leetting, which doesn’t limit people from applying for houses in any particular area across the county.
