A campaign group believes politicians will be forced to revisit the decision to end the eviction ban as homeless numbers rise.

The Raise the Roof group is staging a Dáil protest at lunchtime (12:30pm) to highlight the potentially disastrous impact of the move on thousands living in the rental sector.

Protest coordinator, Macdara Doyle, says they have to do something to get the Government to change its mind.

"There's absolutely no evidence, no research, no data, no studies, nothing has been produced to say 'we're doing this for a very good reason, it will do X or it will do Y'.

"Basically, on the basis of a hunch government are placing thousands of people in immediate danger of possibly losing their homes, and being forced into homelessness.

"It's evidence-free policy making, and it's extremely worrying."
