Over 100 people were queuing for a house viewing to rent in Dublin last night.
Ireland's housing crisis is deepening, with the numbers in homeless accommodation approaching record levels at more than 10,000.
This is what a house viewing now consists of in Dublin.

The Government says it's considering tax breaks for small landlords, and potentially for renters in the Budget.
Conor Finn is originally from Armagh and is trying to find somewhere to live in Dublin - he told Dermot and Dave on Today FM it is completely different in Northern Ireland:
"I even have mates who have been looking up in Belfast who have been able to purchase properties, which at my age seems insane.
"Even University and stuff like that a room in a house would be around £200 a month."
Last week, the latest Daft.ie report showed that the cost of renting is at an all-time high in Ireland.
