The site at Croogorts, also in Tralee, has also recently become active again, with 30 houses to be delivered there in 2022.

The site at Rock Road in Killarney, where 10 houses are being built, has now reopened, as has the single rural dwelling house at Caragh Lake.

Moira Murrell added the completion dates at these sites will be delayed due to their closure.

Contracts have been awarded for 22 social houses in Woodview Place in Tarbert, expected to be completed in August next year, and 8 units at Rahoonane in Tralee, due to be finished by May next year.
