The Dublin Region Homeless Executive wasn't able to offer accommodation to 45 people last month.

While 13 people couldn't be accommodated in emergency housing from November 1st to 16th according to figures from the DRHE.

The Herald reports 99 families are now being put up outside of the capital because there isn't space in the likes of hotels and family hubs. That's up from 63 over the summer.

It comes as the numbers in emergency accommodation across the country reach record levels.

Over 11,300 people are now homeless, the first time the numbers in emergency accommodation have passed the 11,000 mark.

The figure includes over 1,600 families and close to 3,500 children.
