I raised the Impact of the Papal visit on the homeless in the Dáil this week.

I flagged up in the Dáil yesterday the impact the Papal visit will have on those who are homeless or are self accommodating and are living in hotels and B&Bs. 763 families are currently in this position. It has been the case that in the past that such families are put out of the hotels and B&Bs when major events take place in Dublin City so that there rooms can be let for exhorbitant prices. I asked the Minister to ensure that homeless families will not suffer as a consequence of the forthcoming papal visit.
