A leading homeless campaigner has said removing the Housing Minister will not solve the crisis.
A number of groups including the Peter McVerry Trust and the Union of Students in Ireland have joined an umbrella campaign against the housing crisis.
‘Raise the Roof for Housing’ is calling on people to join a rally outside Leinster House on October 3 ahead of the budget.
Father Peter McVerry said that it is Government policy that needs to change and not ministers.
“Eoghan Murphy is only the mouthpiece for Government policy and it’s Government policy that has to change.
“I think we have to continue telling the Government that as far as anyone can see their policies aren’t working.
“Really it’s a question for me of when will the Emperor come to realise that the Emperor doesn’t have any clothes.”
