2,800 "hidden homeless" people around the country are now using a post office as their address -- just nine months since An Post started offering the service.

Just over half are in the capital, but there are people using the service in all counties, according to the Sunday Independent.

231 people are signed up in Cork, with 194 in Galway, 119 in Kildare, 56 and 104 in Wexford.

Focus Ireland says the numbers signed up outside Dublin indicate there are people across Ireland who aren't being recorded in official homelessness statistics.
