RTÉ reports:

New official figures published today show that the number of rough sleepers in the Dublin region is 35% up on the same period last year.

There were 138 people sleeping rough in the Dublin region during this year’s spring count – the highest ever recorded for this time of year.

It is also only slightly down on the last winter count, despite 210 new hostel beds being provided since then.

The figures also do not include a group of 23 Romanians found sleeping rough in Dublin city centre on the night of the count, 4 April…The figures also do not include 57 sleeping on the floor of the all-night Merchants Quay cafe.

    YAY, Simon Coveney for Taoiseach. He’s sorting out the Homeless crisis…. Honest,…. No Honest.

    This is obviously #FakeNews. There’s so many people expressing concern for the homeless and anger about their plight in comments sections on news stories about Muslims and immigrants. There’s no way homelessness has gone up with all those people on the case…unless…unless all those people don’t actually care about the homeless and just wanted to make their hatred of brown people and foreigns seem like selfless concern for others as opposed to a selfish tantrum? Nah, way too far fetched.

      They’ve done this as well? Despicable.
      Put THAT on the side of our buses. Spread the news.
