Homeless families allowed to stay in Lynam’s Hotel until August 1st, but still no long-term alternative offered by Dublin City Council
Statement from Irish Housing Network
The five families in emergency accommodation have been allowed to stay in Lynam’s Hotel until the 1st of August thanks to negotiations between the Irish Housing Network and the hotel management. The hotel managers are permitting the families to stay free of charge, as Dublin City Council have still not sourced suitable alternative long-term emergency accommodation for them.
The future of these families is far from secure; they refute Dublin City Council’s statement that they have been offered suitable alternative accommodation. While some have been offered short-term rooms in other hotels, none of these places are suitable or secure.

- NORTHERN IRELAND’S COMPARABLE ‘HARTE’ INQUIRY
IS MAKING IRELAND “LOOK RIDICULOUS”
Survivors from Mother and Baby homes and other institutions and homes associated with forced and illegal adoptions will picket the official Inquiry to such Homes for refusing to include ALL survivors. The survivor community has been sliced in two by the Terms of Reference for the Inquiry and thousands have been excluded. This wanton discrimination and exclusion is insulting and deeply hurtful to our aging survivor community.
