It's believed the man in his 40s was taking shelter

The Minister for Housing's been asked to order a review after a homeless man was found dead in a chair at Tallaght Hospital.

It's believed the man in his forties had been taking shelter in the hospital's emergency department and had not sought treatment.

An investigation was launched after he was discovered unresponsive on Saturday afternoon.

Anthony Flynn from Inner City Helping Homeless says homelessness and health are beyond crisis levels: 'What the Minister needs to do is put a full review in place on homeless services. Nobody should be entering A&E departments seeking shelter'.
