The number of homeless people in Ireland dropped slightly in November to 10,448.

That represents a fall of 66 when compared with the figures the Department of Housing supplied for October.

It marks the 10th consecutive month in which the homeless figures exceed 10,000.

In November, 6,696 adults accessed emergency accommodation along with 3,752 children.

Most people were homeless in Dublin, followed by Cork, Galway and Limerick.

Speaking this afternoon Inner City Helping Homeless CEO Anthony Flynn welcomed the drop decrease in the number of people accessing emergency accomodation.

However, Flynn believes more needs to be done:

“Such a small reduction just does not go far enough to tackle the ever growing crisis. The epidemic that is homelessness will worsen unless a proper social & affordable housing build program is implemented. The Ministers over-reliance on the private sector to fix a social problem just is not working."
