A leading homelessness campaigner says he is disgusted by the government's reaction to the housing crisis.
Brother Kevin Crowley, the founder of Dublin's Capuchin Day Centre, says "nothing is being done" to provide accommodation for the thousands of people who are now homeless in Ireland.
Earlier this week, Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy denied this was the case.
The latest figures from the Department of Housing show 10,514 people were in emergency accommodation in October.
It's the ninth month in a row that the figures have exceeded 10,000.
Up to 1,000 homeless people are visiting the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin every day to be fed breakfast and dinner.
Brother Kevin Crowley says when the facility was set up in 1969, only 50 people a day attended the centre.
