Dublin has seen the biggest spike in homelessness.

There's been a rise of 15 in adults sleeping rough in the city to 4,069.

The number of families homeless in the capital has gone up by 14 to 702, in the latest figures from the Department of Housing.

Nationally, 8,014 people were homeless in June, a slight increase on the previous month.

However, the figure is an 8 percent drop on the total recorded for the same period last year.

932 families were accessing emergency accommodation across the country in June including 2,167 children.

Focus Ireland, Director of Advocacy, Mike Allen says "The increase in family homelessness in June is a stark reminder of how precarious the progress in tackling homelessness really is. High rents are continuing to put families under pressure while they are also juggling the high cost of childcare during a global pandemic."
