Horrors Of Homelessness – This Has To Stop!
It was horrifying to see four members of a young family in the council offices in Tallaght because they had been removed from a hotel on Friday night and could not get accommodation. Accommodation was provided after a sit-in in the council offices. That is an outrage, as is the fact that the family was given hotel accommodation in a location which meant that the children had to take three buses to get to school.
This has to stop. Some sort of protection in the Constitution on the right to housing at least would force the Government, and future Governments, to protect people in such situations. When will the Minister bring that in?
