Share this article


People are being urged to donate their refunds from Irish Water to tackle the homeless crisis.

173 million euro will be handed back to almost one million customers over the coming months.

Simon Community, Focus Ireland and Peter McVerry Trust have teamed up to launch a new campaign encouraging those that can afford to donate, to do so.

They say the money could help 8000 homeless people.

Chair of the 'Refund Project' is Kieran Mulvey:

"We're hoping that people when Irish people see the level of the refund, and that it's maybe not as much as they were expecting,  that they would give us the benefit of that generosity so that we could put it towards the most deserving and most important cause in this country."
