Out In The Cold


Stuck in the Rough.

An RTÉ Investigates documentary following the stories of several rough sleepers on Dublin’s streets over the past three months. Including Dan Orlovs (above) who…

…has contended with more than most 20-year olds: at the age of 10, able to say little more than his name and age in English, he moved to Ireland with his mother. At 15 years of age he became homeless. Dan and his mother became estranged. For the next four years he slept on friends’ couches, before ending up living on the streets of Dublin in July 2020.

RTÉ Investigates: Stuck in the Rough, at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.

    in the world of RTE homelessness = people living rough. not the swathes of working people on welfare to afford expensive rent or living with their parents till an indecent age. make a show about that rte!

      Stuck in the rough what a title. rte are pigs tho . paying such lip service is their mantra too often, Dee forbes has proved she conspires against the Irish and the way they squander our taxes and threaten people to pay up for their media is disgusting

      rte = FFG propaganda

    That was a hard watch, that poor kid living around Busaras would break your heart.

          Just thinking about the soul destroying aspect of it and it struck me that, after all he’d been through, Dan was still determined that he could see a better future and a way off the streets.

          As a society we’re failing these people and the disconnect between what the minister was saying and the reality of those ringing looking for emergency accommodation was frustrating to watch so I can only imagine how frustrating it was to deal with on a daily basis.

            The part that really struck a chord with me was when he said he was optimistic for his future but the optimism was gradually decreasing (I’m paraphrasing)

            Nobody should be without hope at such an early age.
