Today With Sean O Rourke Thursday 1 May 2014
We are in the middle of a homelessness and housing crisis in Ireland. Almost 90,000 people are currently on the waiting list for social housing and one in five of those has been on the waiting list for more than five years.
Meanwhile, demand for homeless support services has increased sharply.
Sean was joined by Simon Brook, Head of Policy with the Housing Agency Clúid, and Niamh Randall, National Spokesperson for the Simon Communities in Ireland.
