The outreach teams are out to get people into accommodation. No one will be turned away. Also, when we have the cold weather initiative in place, people are not just being turfed out onto the street. We have to be mindful of the fact that it is very cold-----

Mr Murphy I can verify the man I spoke to yesterday morning at Heuston Station was turfed out of a hostel - what prompted that answer was I said to him try get inside today.

Thank you Mary Lou for bringing this up - he was freezing ! He has a young girl with him too . There are 5 tents at least at the end of Heuston Bridge - I don't want these people to be just moved from one place to the other - they need permanent shelter and not be turfed out in the morning as you said they are not
