Hundreds of people have taken part in a protest in Dublin over the ending of the eviction ban.
The rally was organised by the Cost of Living Coalition outside the Dáil to highlight the housing crisis.
The coalition is made of up trade unions, advocacy groups and homelessness agencies.
Demonstrators have called for immediate action from the Government to address the shortage of housing.
The Government agreed to end the ban earlier this month, despite an outcry from opposition parties and housing organisations.
More than 11,700 people accessed emergency accommodation across the State in February.
Housing charity Threshold has said it is dealing with almost 1,800 live cases of tenancy termination.
Sinn Féin TD Louise O'Reilly told the crowd the shame of this stands with the Government.
These people said renters have no other options.
"There's people struggling to buy homes, so if they're not able to keep renting where else are they going to go?" one protestor said.
"There's lots of people who are now in a position where they have nowhere to go, they have no support or anything like that," another protester added.
"They're just going to be in emergency accommodation, or just flat out on their ear, and it's an absolute disgrace."
