Fifty six tenants in Roscommon were issued with eviction notices in the three month period leading up to the introduction of the eviction ban on October 28th last year, new figures reveal.
The figures show Dublin, Cork and Galway were the counties which had the most eviction notices issued before the evictions moratorium was announced.
The Residential Tenancy Board (RTB) data showed a total of 4,741 notices to quit were issued by landlords in the three months leading up to when the eviction ban was introduced.
The vast majority – around 39pc – or 1,839 notices, were given to tenants in Dublin, while a further approximately 10pc, or 500, were sent to renters in Cork.
The lowest number of eviction notices issued by landlords were in Monaghan (26), Leitrim (27) and Cavan (33). Galway residents made up around 6pc or 286 of the cases.
The Government’s recent decision to lift the eviction ban from the end of this month has caused political controversy.
