The number of homeless families in Dublin has dropped to its lowest number in four years.
There were 856 families in emergency accommodation at the end of August, down slightly from 862 in July.
It's the lowest number since April 2016.
At the end of August there were 302 families in hotels, down 32 from July. This is the lowest number since April 2015.
However, the number of single people sleeping rough is still rising, with 2,962 of them homeless in August.
Dublin City Council Deputy Chief Executive Brendan Kenny says: "While the reduction in numbers is always very welcome, we fully accept that there are still far too many families in emergency accommodation, including hotels.
"We are very conscious of the challenge that still exists on homelessness in the Dublin area.
