Speaking in Wicklow today, the Minister for Health Simon Harris said that the image of the children sleeping rough on the chairs of the garda station in Dublin was upsetting to everyone in the country.
“I don’t think there was anyone in the country who wasn’t upset to see those scenes in Tallaght Garda Station.”, RTE reports.
“For any mother to feel that she needs to go to a garda station with her own children to seek emergency provision is obviously something that isn’t right.”
He added: “I don’t think anyone could suggest that it is in any way right. But the Government’s priority is on working to address the social housing shortage in this country.”
