The Housing Minister is insisting the Forum on Homelessness is not just a talking shop.

Paudie Coffey also says the Government will do all in its power to get homeless people off the streets by Christmas.

The Forum on Homelessness has been called in the wake of the death of Kilkennyman Jonathan Corrie – just metres away from Leinster House on Molesworth Street in Dublin earlier this week.

Voluntary groups working with homeless people and local authorities are among those attending today’s meeting.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin Christie Burke says immediate action is needed.
