Cllr. Larry O'Toole speaks out against use of warehouses to house homeless

Sinn Féin Councillor Larry O'Toole at today's Dublin City Council Housing Committee spoke against the proposed use of the former Bargaintown warehouse in Coolock for homeless families.

Speaking at the meeting, Cllr. O'Toole said:

“This proposal to take homeless families out of hotel accommodation and place them into disused warehouses as a solution to the homeless crisis cannot be considered, either long or short term.

“Dublin City Council and the Minister for Housing, Community and Local Government Simon Coveney need to review this decision immediately and start providing actual homes for people.”
