The latest homeless figures show a drop in the number of people who were in emergency accommodation in November, as the figures remain above 10,000 for the tenth month in a row.
Figures released by the Department of Housing show a total of 10,448 people were in emergency accommodation during the week of 18th-24th November 2019.
It's down from 10,514 people in October - a decrease of 66 people.
The number of children in emergency accommodation dropped from 3,826 to 3,752.
However, the number of homeless adults rose from 6,688 to 6,696.
November's figures also show that the number of homeless families stood at 1,685 in November.
The number of homeless people in Ireland topped 10,000 for the first time on record in February 2019, and has remained above that number in the months since.
Reacting to the latest figures, the Inner City Helping Homeless group said any decrease is welcome - but claimed the official figures "cannot be relied on".
CEO Anthony Flynn said: "We need to have independent oversight on these figures.
"Such a small reduction just does not go far enough to tackle the ever growing crisis.
"The epidemic that is homelessness will worsen unless a proper social & affordable housing build program is implemented."
