The Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is expected to be an attendance at Fariyhouse this weekend as the Irish Grand National will be held at the iconic racecourse this Bank Holiday Monday.
In a week were Mr Varadkar has been the subject of stern criticism, it was revealed that the Fine Gael leader will be amongst the 30,000 spectators to descend on Co Meath course to watch the renowned steeplechase event.
Mr Varadkar who was on the end of some rather strong comments in regards to the recent homeless crisis this week, will surely be looking to getaway from the heat in the Dail as latest figures from the Department of Housing reveled there are currently 10,000 people homeless in Ireland.
The Taoiseach will however have some more pressing matters to deal with in the coming days ahead as he will look to address the crisis which he himself has described as unbelievably frustrating.
Mr Varadkar was heavily criticised earlier this week by a number of opposition TD’s after he informed the Dail that the Government is currently handling the situation better than the opposition would be able to.
Those comments have once again led to fresh calls from opposition TD’s and homeless charity groups, with many urging the government to address the situation quickly as it has become unabtainable.
