The activists behind Apollo House have said they will leave the office block, once suitable accomodation becomes available.

The Home Sweet Home campaign have said they will not be taking anymore homeless people into Apollo House, and will start to put the plans in place to leave.

It was revealed at a press conference this evening that a deal had been struck with the Housing Minister Simon Coveney which will include the opening of 'at least' two new homeless facilities.

Also in the deal will see monthly meetings with Home Sweet Home and Dublin City Council while, according to the group, Minister Coveney has guaranteed there will be no families in hotels or B&B's by the 1st of July 2017.
