Protest over homelessness

Firstly, hundreds of protesters have gathered outside the Dáil calling for action to address homelessness.

The protest was largely organised by homeless people themselves through Facebook groups.

The Dáil also heard statements on housing at the same time.

They marched through the city centre - including Grafton Street - on then made their way to Leinster House.

 

One man explained:

"I came from Galway to be here today because I believed that something needs to be done and pressure needs to be put on the Government."

One of the women protesting added:

"There's too much greed, and everyone deserves a home."

"People in direct provision deserve homes; people on the street deserve homes; people who are couch surfing deserve homes."

Figures released earlier this week also showed a further increase in the number of people in emergency accommodation in October

The latest figures were also released just hours before the Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy survived a no-confidence motion in the Dáil.
