Ireland: Home shortage at centre of election debate

A record number of babies are now born into homelessness.

Ireland is one of the fastest-growing economies in Europe, but the sudden boom after years of economic austerity has left the country with a critical shortage of affordable housing.

That has led to a sharp increase in homelessness.

The crisis is a defining issue ahead of this weekend’s general election.
