Eoghan Murphy has been under pressure

The Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy has survived a motion of no confidence in the Dáil.

The motion to remove him was lost by 56 votes to 53 - thanks to the support of a number of Independent TD's

Independents Noel Grealish, Michael Lowry and Denis Naughten voted with the government.

The motion was filed last week by the Social Democrats over the Government's record in housing.

Ahead of the vote, Minister Murphy told members of the Dáil: "Our work isn't finished yet, but we continue to make progress - we continue to see our plans through because we recognise that people are hurting in this crisis.

It's the second time he has faced a no-confidence vote after the first one failed last year.

Record homelessness figures

Ahead of the vote, it was revealed that the numbers living in emergency accommodation were at an all-time high.

10,514 people now live in emergency accommodation - of those 3,826 are children.

In addition, a report found Dublin was the worst place to live when it came to housing.
