A Tipperary TD says the Government’s Help to Buy scheme is failing first time buyers.

Figures from the Department of Finance show just 21 applications have been lodged in the Premier County since the scheme opened in January.

Fianna Fail’s Jackie Cahill says the reason for the low uptake is down to the fact that enough houses aren’t being built.
