Homelessness in November increases despite ban on evictions – Eoin Ó Broin TD

Sinn Féin housing spokesperson Eoin Ó Broin TD has called for “urgent action on homelessness” as figures from the Department of Housing show that despite the ban on evictions in November almost all categories of homelessness have increased. 

Teachta Ó Broin said:

“November’s homeless report issued by the Department of Housing today shows an increase in all categories of homelessness despite the ban on evictions coming into force that month.

“The most significant increase has been amongst single adults. However they was also an increase in the number of both children and pensioners in emergency accommodation in November. 

“The latest rise in homelessness is further evidence that the Governments housing is failing. We need an emergency response from the Minister for Housing both to increase the supply of social housing and to reduce the flow of singles and families into homelessness.”

The third and final day of a fantastic Ploughing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Sinn Féin tent for a chat over the last few day.

Sinn Féin in Government would stand up and ensure a future for our family farmers and deliver a fair deal for rural Ireland.


It was totally irresponsible for the Minister for Health to travel abroad possibly knowing the scandal at Temple Street Children’s Hospital was going to break.

This scandal raises serious questions around transparency, discipline, oversight & clinical governance. @davidcullinane
