The housing Minister visited Carrick on Shannon today

The doubling of the Housing Assistance Payment single rate will greatly help those applying for the scheme in County Roscommon.

That's according to Housing Minister Darragh O'Brien who was on a visit to Carrick-on-Shannon today.

According to a recent study compiled by Labour Senator Rebecca Moynihan, Roscommon have no one-bedroom properties available for rent that would be suitable for one person to live in.
