    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.
