O’Neill & Co engaged by Kildare County Council to assess pledged homes for Ukrainian refugees

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has resulted in millions of people being displaced from their homes, many of whom have sought refuge in other countries. Ireland has been one of the countries that has opened its doors to Ukrainian refugees, offering them the chance for temporary protection in a safe and welcoming environment.

In Ireland, local authorities are responsible for providing accommodation to Ukrainian refugees. The government has set up a dedicated programme to support local authorities in this regard, with the aim of providing suitable accommodation for all refugees.

Kildare County Council appointed O’Neill & Co. to inspect all properties offered throughout County Kildare to assess their suitability. Working on behalf of Kildare County Council, our Associate Surveyor, Cian O’Sullivan has already inspected over 100 properties since September 2022.

In assessing the pledged properties, Cian has reviewed a range of accommodation types, from apartments to holiday homes, ensuring they meet all requirements specified by Kildare County Council.

Commenting on his involvement in this scheme, Cian said ‘I have enjoyed working closely with Kildare County Council to ensure the refugees can be housed in a timely manner and in accommodation that suits their needs. We also provided advice to the homeowners and licensors. It’s been a pleasure to meet those pledging their homes in an effort to alleviate some of the stress already on Ukrainian families fleeing their home country.’
