Wicklow County Council Record Third Lowest Number Of Applicants Refusing Offers Of Social Housing Since 2016

According to the Journal.ie, the figures show that between 2016 and 2018, 1,040 people turned down the offer of a council house from Dublin City Council, with 371 offers turned down in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, while South Dublin council had 285 people turn down an offer.

During the same period, 38 offers were rejected here in Wicklow.
