Dublin City Council may have to do a u-turn tonight on plans to cut funding for homeless and disability services.

Councillors are meeting to vote on what money should be spent where this year. 

There was massive opposition yesterday to news that homeless groups would be getting 6 million euro less in this year's budget.

Funding for the city's roads and Poolbeg incinerator payments are expected to take a hit in order to overturn the controversial proposals by the City Manager.
