More than 50 years after helping to set up Dublin's Capuchin Day Centre, Brother Kevin Crowley is to retire.

The Herald reports that the 87-year-old, who has been at the helm of the drop-in facility for the homeless since 1969, will step down this month.

He helped set up the centre after he found around dozens of men were eating food out of bins in the city each day.

The Smithfield facility makes breakfast for around 200 people each morning and serves dinner for up to 800 people each evening.

It also hosts medical clinics, distributes food parcels, offers shower facilities and has a family area.
