Over a fifth of Dublin city council's €1.34 billion budget for next year will be spent on homeless services.

It comes after the spending plan, the largest ever local authority budget, was approved by councillors last night.

€301 million euro has been allocated for homeless services, €61 million more than this year.

Meanwhile funding for street cleaning has been given a boost with an extra €3 million in 2024, while an extra €810,000 will go towards animal welfare and the control of dogs.

Two Dublin Fire Brigade classes are also included in the plan, along with the recruitment of Emergency Control Room Operators.

Head of Finance with the council, Kathy Quinn, told councillors €637 million will be spent on housing;

"It won't surprise you that housing is the largest spend in terms of the key services that are there. Whether it's homeless or leasing, HAP, supports."
