  • Not one single property in Galway City or Athlone is affordable to those in receipt of rent supplement or housing assistance payments.

    That’s according to new figures compiled by the Simon Community from figures supplied by property website Daft.ie.

    The report looks at11 areas across the country, including Sligo town, Galway city and Athlone, and found there were no properties available within HAP limits in four of the 11 locations, with two other areas having just one available property.
