Gardai have confirmed a young homeless mother and her six children had to sleep in a Dublin Garda station last night.

A mum and her six children aged from one to 11 were forced to sleep in the waiting room of Tallaght Garda station after efforts to find emergency accommodation failed.

Anthony Flynn from Inner City Helping Homeless says he has never felt as low during his time as an activist:

"Its absolutely shocking and appalling that anybody would have to sleep in a Garda station but in particular the fact that six children would be sent to Garda stations. Yesterday was one of the worst days I've seen in five years in homeless services."
