    Inner City Helping the Homeless

    Inner City Helping the Homeless

    Anthony Flynn, a bar manager working in Dublin city, saw many homeless people living on the streets every night and he and his friends got together and decided to do something about it. Through Facebook they called out for volunteers and it went from there. Month by month they got more organised and after Christmas they set up a company with a Board of Management chaired by the Lord Mayor with offices in Killarney St. The company is called Inner City Helping the Homeless.

    Last week, according to the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive, there were 184 adults with children in emergency accommodation in hotels in Dublin. That compares to 16 adults and children in hotels just two years ago. So pressure on emergency housing services, particularly in Dublin, continues to grow. The central placement service of the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive is open five days a week at Parkgate st in Dublin. Homeless people go there in search of emergency accommodation. Paddy O'Gorman was there yesterday.

    The Civil Defence has been asked to help cope with Dublin’s growing homeless problem, by providing additional emergency accommodation at their headquarters on Wolfe Tone Quay. Twenty temporary beds have been set up inside a building which housed a soup kitchen during the Famine, in an attempt to deal with the 50% increases in the numbers sleeping rough in Dublin since last April. Brian O’Connell has been to visit the new temporary shelter and spoke to some of those who are using it.

    Homeless Immigrants

    The plight of some immigrants from Eastern Europe who came to Ireland during the boom, and may now be homeless, was brought to the fore with the death of Polish man Henryk Piotrowski in recent weeks. This followed the death earlier this summer of Czech man Josef Pavelka, who had been living for some time in a public toilet in Ennis. Brian O’Connell reported on that case and last week, he spent time talking to some homeless immigrants and the agencies working to get help to immigrants who have fallen on hard times.

    Helping the homeless

    Twenty years ago Ann took in a homeless girl. The girl had one young child and was pregnant with a second. She had been turned away by her family. The girl stayed with her until she gave birth to her second baby. Ann helped her find accommodation and kept in contact with her. The two children are reared now and in college. Ann wants to say if you see a homeless person and you don’t want to give money – walk past. If you do – just give it. Don’t make a fuss about it. Obviously in some cases people ...
