Slight increase in the number of people presenting as homeless to local County Councils

Leitrim County Council worked with the first person to present as homeless in the county this year during April.

According to figures published by the Department of Housing, one person presented as homeless in Leitrim in April- the first individual to do so this year.

Roscommon’s homeless figures also grew by one from seven to eight in April compared to March, while Longford’s remained unchanged at five people accessing some form of homeless assistance.
