Thousands march in protest on homelessness crisis

By Dave Stapleton and Ana Novais

Thousands of people took to the streets of Dublin and Cork last week in protest of Ireland’s continued homelessness crisis.

Marches were organised on social media through a Facebook group called Protest against Homelessness in Ireland, which has over 67,000 members.

The protest comes on the back of Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy narrowly surviving a motion of no confidence, put forward by the Social Democrats in the Dail last week.

The latest figures from Focus Ireland show that 10,514 people are living without a home, 4,000 of which are children.
