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.

The Lord Mayor has been quoted as saying today that he'd rather pot-holes go un-fixed than target the most vulnerable people in the city.

Fianna fail and Sinn Fein have both called on all councillors to reject the budget.

Donaghmede rep Micheal McDonnchadh says money raised through the property tax isnt being ring-fenced to save essential services
