10,172 people were registered as homeless last month, according to the latest government figures.

That's a drop of 81 when compared to May, and the second consecutive month in which the figures have dropped.

Here's the breakdown of the adults how accessed emergency accommodation:

Over the course of June, 3,675 children accessed homeless services.

The number has dropped for the third month in a row.

Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy says more needs to be done to bring the numbers down even further:

CEO of Inner City Helping Homeless Anthony Flynn has welcomed the drop in the numbers of people reporting as homeless.

However, he says "the real figure stands a lot higher than 10,172 as we don’t count rough sleepers, direct provision, families in women’s aid shelters or people couch surfing unlike other countries".
