Too many Cork people refusing Council houses says Cllr

Cork County Council has begun to suspend people from its waiting list for
social housing after nearly half of the homes it offered last year were
turned down.****

Up to 347 offers were made, but 164 homes were rejected for reasons
including that a house was built on a hill which could be slippy in winter;
because there was no playroom; and because a kitchen was not spacious
enough for an large American-style fridge.****

The figures emerged in a weekend newspaper.****

and today politicians have been reacting to the figures****

John Mulvihill is a Labour Town Councillor in Cobh

He says people offered social housing accept it, and should be grateful
