A Sinn Féin bill, calling on the eviction ban to be extended until 2024, has been defeated.
TDs voted on the proposed legislation in the Dáil this evening.
The Government defeated the bill by 81 votes to 67.
It comes hours after the coalition comfortably survived a no confidence vote over its handling of the housing crisis.
Several Independents and former coalition members backed the Government in the earlier vote, with 86 votes in its favour and 67 against.
Independent TDs Joe McHugh, Cathal Berry, Sean Canney, Noel Grealish, Michael Lowry, Denis Naughten, Matt Shanahan and Marc MacSharry all voted with the Government.
Meanwhile, exiled Green Party TD Neasa Hourigan also voted with the coalition.
The Labour Party originally tabled a motion of no confidence in the Government after the Dáil last week backed its decision to lift the eviction ban.
The Government then tabled its own motion that TDs eventually voted on.
