Almost 250 families are registered as homeless

By Brendan Grehan

THERE ARE 249 families registered homeless with South Dublin County Council, the Clondalkin Area Meeting of SDCC heard last week.

Cllr Francis Timmons tabled a question asking the “Chief Executive for an update report on numbers homeless and numbers in hotels in the Clondalkin area?”

The council replied that as of October 13 last , there are 249 households registered homeless with SDCC.

The Council added: “The CPS Placement system managed by Dublin Regional Homeless Executive unfortunately does not provide details by Electoral area, however, currently there are 44 households in hotel accommodation.

This can change from day to day as families are currently sourcing accommodation under the Self Accommodation Option, when sanctioned by South Dublin County Council Homeless Section.”

Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Timmons said that at one stage there were 100 homeless families from Clondalkin in hotel accommodation.

He added: “That is down now because of the new accommodation at Tallaght Cross. It’s very hard to know how many homeless families there are because some could be couch-surfing moving from place to place.”
