Lack Of Social Housing In Ireland "Shameful"
That's according to Karen Doyle of Right2Housing who was speaking ahead of a protest march in the City centre tomorrow
The protest comes as the latest homeless figures show there are 447 people living in emergency accommodation in Cork and 125 homeless families in Cork and Kerry.
The Taoiseach turned the sod on a €40 million affordable housing project in Mayfield earlier this month, and plans to build a number of social housing developments have been announced in the City and County, however the government has faced criticism for a lack of progress on the matter.
Speaking to RedFM News, Karen Doyle from the Right2Housing campaign says local authorities also have a responsibility to act:
