Housing Crisis must be Declared as a National Emergency
Members of City Council have been asked to join their colleagues in the County and declare the crisis in housing and homelessness to be an National Emergency.
Councillor Diarmaid Ó Cadhla has asked members of the City Council to grasp the opportunity for Cork to take the lead in tackling the housing crisis, he asked two things:
- That Cork City Council formally declare the crisis to be a emergency and to ask Government to establish a National Emergency Committee on the issue.
- To stand with the ‘Housing Action Group’, and the public, who are launching a 24 hour #occupy style protest at 1pm Tuesday 27th outside Cork City Hall.
