A Kildare councillor says he thinks people are becoming "a bit numb" to the homeless crisis.

10 families became homeless in Kildare in a single period of 31 days, between September 30th and October 31st.

105 adults (+24%) and 145 children (+12%) are now in emergency accommodation supplied by Kildare County Council.

Not all of these families are being accommodated in Kildare.

20% of children are in homelessness in Kildare for between 12-30 months.

The data was obtained from Kildare County Council by Social Democrats Cllr., Aidan Farrelly.
