A protest will take place in Dublin at midday today, urging the City Council to step in and save the tenants of Tathony House from eviction.
Last year, over 100 residents of the 35-apartment block in Kilmainham were sent eviction notices as their homes are to be sold.
Opponents of the decision will gather at Dublin City Council offices and call on authorities to act.
“We’re asking for Dublin City Council to intervene in cases like ours where an owner wants to sell property,” People Before Profit councillor Madeleine Johansson told Newstalk.
“[They should] step in and buy those properties so the tenants are safe from eviction.”
The latest homelessness figures from the Government revealed that there were 11,632 people living in emergency accommodation - a record high.
