A Sinn Fein TD insists he's aware of at least one family who is being told to leave their temporary accommodation, as demand for hotel rooms soars for the St Patrick's Day festivities.
Sean Crowe says a number of families have received letters telling them they'll have to vacate in the run up to this weekend.
The Dublin Region Homeless Executive has moved to reassure people in emergency accommodation there's no threat to their rooms, because they have been block booked by the local authority in advance.
"We continue to maintain normal arrangements with hotels over Paddy's weekend.
Dublin City Council pre book hotel rooms one month in advance (at all times of the year) to ensure there is sufficient capacity for families."
Deputy Crowe says the family he's been in contact today has been given a list of hotels to ring as part of a self accommodate process.
"I just had one (family) on today and they were saying they are literally packing their personal items in the hotel this morning and they are at a loss as to where they're going."
Dublin City Council is asking anyone who is asked to leave a hotel to get in touch with them and they will find an alternative room.
