Homes built as part of a social housing project in Cherry Orchard in Dublin are to start being allocated by the end of this week.
Concern had been raised about the future of the development last night, after it was revealed that MDY Construction - the company building the homes - had gone into receivership.
This happened midway through the project - with only 32 of the planned 72 houses built.
Chair of Dublin City Council's Housing Committee Daithi Doolan was given an update from Cooperative Housing Ireland last night.
Cllr Doolan was told "Of the 32 houses that are ready they're going to start allocating them by the end of this week. Another 8 next week and each week until the 32 are allocated."
"They're hoping to employ new builders as quickly as possible, get a new contractor with new builders and get them back on site to complete the works."
