The brief occupation of a NAMA owned apartment block in Dublin by homelessness activists ended in the early hours of this morning, according to Gardaí.

A group calling themselves the 'Premier Love Project' entered a building located on the old Premier Dairies site on the Finglas Road late last night.

The apartment building has around 60 units.

One member, Colin McGettrick, posted video of the event to Facebook, and called on others around Ireland to seize NAMA-owned buildings.

Gardaí were called to the property, and they say the homelessness activists left a short time later.

The group is not associated with Home Sweet Home, the group that has occupied Apollo House in Dublin. They have been ordered to leave by January 11th, although have continued offering accommodation and services for homeless people over the Christmas period.

According to The Irish Times, a Home Sweet Home spokeswoman said that while they only heard about the takeover on Thursday morning, the group were "in solidarity" with it.
