On the second anniversary of the formation of the current Government, Taoiseach Enda Kenny today vowed to do more to help mortgage holders in trouble with arrears.
He pledged to ensure that most families were offered sustainable solutions by next year.
At a press conference with Tanaiste, Eamon Gilmore, both said they will make sure economic recovery does not bypass families affected by unemployment by making sure any new jobs go to those on the Live Register.
Mr Kenny said he expected the doors of the personal insolvency agency to be open for business by early summer.
The leaders also maintain that the country will be exiting the International Monetary Fund-EU programme by continuing to reduce borrowing and debt.
Mr Kenny insisted that the Coalition is making serious progress on implementing the Programme for Government.
He said that two thirds of targets had been met and a sense of stability was returning.
