Mary Street, Dublin 1.
😔I never thought I would witness such scenes in Dublin City Centre.
Shameful. A year ago we had an election with housing / homelessness as the number 1 issue.#DontForgetMe #rtept#HowIrelandWorks @DarraghOBrienTD@LeoVaradkar@MichealMartinTD @EamonRyan pic.twitter.com/Jgp6BdKybB

This morning and yesterday afternoon.
Dublin city centre.
There’s been an increase in drug relapses and loneliness among homeless people during the pandemic.
A new study from Merchants Quay Ireland’s warned that rough sleepers who are struggling with mental illness and drug use, are suffering as a result of disruption to services because of Covid.
They’ve had reduced access to toilets, been unable to wash and have found the loss of in-person counselling supports difficult.
Tents on fire in the city center.
We are hoping this was not intentionally done.
Teams are at location now.

Foley Street, Dublin.
Inner City Helping Homeless reports that the tent belonged to a rough sleeper, and was not occupied at the time of the fire.
South William Street, Dublin 2
Cover a street like South William with canvas -its easy to do if you hire event guys -and allow all restaurants to have spaced out seating on the road outside so we can all go into town and relax without being squashed together dangerously. This will last five years so lets go.

Inventive M*A*S*H-style fun?
Or literal hipster bubble?
It could go either way.
