Sinn Féin’s housing spokesperson highlights case of homeless family forced to sleep in Portiuncula Hospital

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Sinn Féin’s housing spokesperson has highlighted the case of a homeless family forced to sleep in Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe.
Eoin O Broin says more people will be forced to sleep in hospitals and Garda stations if there isn’t a change in leadership.
He was responding to reports that a family, including 6 children, had been sent by Gardaí to sleep in Portiuncula Hospital last week as they had nowhere else to go.
The story emerged as the party tabled a motion yesterday for Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy to step down.
Deputy O’Broin says this East Galway incident proves the crisis is no longer just a Dublin phenomenon.
