100 asylum seekers who have been given permission to stay in Ireland remain in direct provision centres across the Shannonside region.
83 asylum seekers are living in Leitrim but remain at a centre because they can’t find housing of their own.
A further 17 people are in a similar situation in Longford while there are no asylum seekers at direct provision centres in Roscommon waiting on their own home.
According to the Irish Daily Mail the International protection Accommodation Service has issued a tender for each county looking for help from housing bodies to house those on waiting lists.
It's understood around 5,000 of the country's 17,000 asylum seekers cannot find a home despite having the same housing entitlements as Irish nationals.
IPAS says they experience barriers such as transport to get to viewings and language competency for form filling.
