Listen: Kildare Family Cannot Find A Home, Despite €1,400 A Month Rental Budget.

: 10/13/2017 - 12:33

A Kildare woman says she cannot find a home, despite a monthly rental budget of around €1,400.

The rented home in which Tracey, her partner and her two small children lived was gutted by fire last November

They, and their dog, are  living in a one-window, one-bed property that has been lent to them by a friend living abroad.

However, it is not suitable for long-term accommodation because of damp and a lack of ventilation, and the fact that her partner has serious health issues, including asthma and heart problems.

Tracey, speaking to Kildare Today, says, her family is competing against countless others for accommodation
