There was a slight increase in the number of HAP tenancies in Kerry during the first quarter of the year.

That's according to figures provided by Housing Minister Darragh O'Brien, following a parliamentary question by Tipperary Fianna Fáil TD, Jackie Cahill.

Housing Assistance Payment or HAP is a form of social housing support for people with a long-term housing need, whereby the council pays the landlord directly, and the tenant makes a contribution to the council.

This represents an increase of almost 4% in the space of three months.
