It is with sorrow that we report the death of yet another member of Dublin’s Homeless Community. News has just reached Inner City Helping Homeless that a service user has passed away this morning. Reports state that the person who cannot be named at this stage died of pneumonia.
ICHH Director made the following statement: “At this point we cannot name the person but our condolences are with his family at this time. His brother is currently engaged with our service and our heartfelt condolences to him. This is a serious matter, I can only urge the Minister to reestablish talks with organisations regarding the ongoing crisis. This is the second death in two weeks and it will not be the last. The figures are just unsustainable, how many deaths are required before we see intervention”.
ICHH would like to express our heartfelt condolences. We urge the public to please use our emergency out of hours number (in the poster above) and report anyone they see sleeping rough across the city.
