Conference exploring homelessness in Donegal taking place next week


An evening conference under the title "Donegal's Hidden Problem" will take place next week in Letterkenny, exploring the extent of homelessness in Donegal, and what needs to be done to address it.

Deputy Thomas Pringle will co-chair the event at the Radisson Blu, Letterkenny on Thursday October 26th.

Other contributors will include Fr Peter McVerry and David Hall, CEO of the Irish Mortgage Holders Association.

Deputy Pringle says homelessness is on the rise in Donegal, and he believes the official figure of 15 homeless people in the county is just the tip of a very deep iceberg..............
