This evening.

The Department of Housing has released the latest homeless figures which show there were  10,514 people (6,688 adults and 3,826 children) living in emergency accommodation in the final week of October.

This is yet another record high.

In November 2018, the figure was 9,968; in December 2018, 9,753; in January 2019,  9,987; in February 2019, 10,264; in March 2019, 10,305; in April 2019, 10,378; in May 2019, 10,253; in June 2019, 10,172; in July 2019, 10,275; in August 2019, 10,338; in September 2019, 10,397.

The release of the figures comes hours ahead of the Social Democrats’ motion of no confidence in the Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy this evening which gets under way at 8pm.

A debate and vote on the motion can be watched live in the link above.

    Fianna Failed will keep Murphy in his job so they can stay in theirs. Dara ain’t the only one milking the parliamentary system.

    The latest immigration figures should be out soon – my guess is a further year on year increase.
    The homeless figures are always a good indicator – one causes the other.

      Also, and primarily, a steadfast refusal by the current administration to implement an adequate home building program.

      Anti immigration is left wing politics not right dear.

      Along with homelessness, burrito shops have also increased exponentially.

      The burrito shops are always a good indicator – burrito shops cause homelessness.

        The state also has a record number of people.
        If the number of people in increasing faster than the number of dwellings…

      there must be 100,000 non EU language students in Ireland at this stage. it’s amazing how there’s no limit to visas given there nowhere to live? #cheaplabour

        Can you provide a source for that?

        https://mei.ie/10-rise-in-international-english-language-students-studying-in-ireland-with-numbers-now-at-107000/ says that in 2015
        Of the total number of students (107,129) attending programmes at MEI schools and colleges, approximately 78,000 students (73%) coming from the EU / EEA region. Approximately 18,500 students (17%) came from the non-EU / EEA where no visas were required, e.g. Brazil, Japan and South Korea. The remaining 10,300 students (10%) came from non-EU / EEA where visas are required, e.g. Russia, Saudi Arabia and China.

        This says there were 28,800 non EU language students in 2015, and of these 10,300 needed a visa.

      because the majority of people are selfish. people don’t get angry until things begin to go awry for them. people will nod and say “yes its terrible, the homeless situation, yes, awful” but ultimately don’t care because all is well in their world.

      Seriously, that’s your answer and your comment. It is brain dead people like you urging to vote for independents (who are only interested in their seat) and for the shinners, that results in no decision makers being elected. How would you solve he housing crisis? By electing a City Council full of lefties who did not build a single house, yet object to any in their area?

      if there was no one in his role, the situation would be better. he’s only implemented actions to stoke the crisis.
