The number of rough sleepers in Dublin is at its highest level since records began. The figures have been described as very disappointing and unacceptable.
On the night of November the 7th -184 people slept rough on the streets of Dublin - which is the highest number since the count began in 2007.
70 percent of the rough sleepers were found in the inner city with 30 percent in Fingal, South Dublin and Dun Laoghaire.
The Dublin Region Homeless Executive says 80 of the rough sleepers were Irish, 53 were foreign while the reminder couldn't be identified.
The Peter McVerry Trust says the figures are very disappointing and clearly not acceptable and it says more needs to be done to help single homeless people and couples.
While Focus Ireland says the figures show the homeless crisis is deepening with less than five weeks to Christmas.
