22 prefab-style houses for the homeless in Poppintree, Ballymun, won't be ready until the end of the month.
That'Â’s a delay of around two months following weather disruption and protests at the site during December.
The first 22 prefab style units for homeless families are still being constructed in Ballymun.
They were supposed to be ready for Christmas, but are two months behind schedule due to bad weather, protests, and the intimidation of builders on the site.
Other protests have sprung up where local authorities want to construct the homes, in places like Coolock, Drimnagh and Balbriggan.
Environment Minister Alan Kelly is making a fresh appeal for communities to support the schemes. He stated that:
'You cant have it every way. You cant say you want to help people who are in a vulnerable situation, help people who are becoming homeless and then say you are opposed to putting houses like this in an area like this.'
