From my Journal Column:
“Last week, Cork Simon reported a 358% increase in rough sleeping in the last two years and a Cork food bank reported that it has delivered 80,000 meals in the past four months. Two years ago, Cork Penny Dinners served about 100 meals a week. Now it’s over 1,500.
“This is Ireland today, where a homeless man can die, alone in the cold, right across the street from Leinster House. Was it for this, indeed.”
