Homeless Crisis {RSF Dublin}


Preas Ráitheas / Press Release

“As the homelessness crisis worsens throughout the country it has been reported that there are 35,000 empty homes lying idle in Dublin alone, with the number countrywide been over the 230,000 mark.

Official figures show a 56% increase in the amount of people sleeping rough on the streets of the capital since last winter as homelessness reaches new shocking levels.  142 people were counted sleeping rough in Dublin last week at the twice yearly count.  The true number of people homeless is much higher as the ‘hidden homeless’ numbers are unknown.”
