Press Release

Sinn Féin Housing spokesperson Eoin Ó Broin has commented on the publication of the Department of Housing’s official homeless figures for September, which show for the 8th month in a row the number of people in homeless accommodation is over 10,000.

Deputy Ó Broin said:

“For the 8th month in row the number of people officially living in emergency accommodation is over 10,000.

“In September 2019 10,397 men, women and children were living in hotels, hubs and B&Bs.

“This is an increase of 59 on the previous month with 34 more adults and 25 more children living in emergency accommodation in September.

“Minister Murphy’s’ failure to deal with this crisis is normalising homelessness.

“His time would be better spent addressing his own policy failures rather than going on the News at One to lash out at opposition politicians.

“Cheap political point scoring by the Minister responsible for Housing is not helpful.

“We are talking about more than figures here. It is 10,397 men, women and children and their daily lives.

“Separately, figures received by my office today show an increase in the number of families accessing one night only emergency accommodation in Dublin, which rose from 54 in July this year to 63 at the end of October.”
