Published: Fri 17th Mar, 2017 | 12:38

Housing and Homelessness have been recurrent themes in the work of President Higgins, both in relation to housing in Ireland and the experiences of people driven from their homes and homelands.

The President has spoken about the Irish migrants' experiences on many occasions, and has also been a vocal advocate for generosity towards migrants and refugees.

President Higgins has met with a number of housing associations and social housing providers, including Clúid Housing (2019), the Sophia Housing Project (2014), the Thornton Heights Housing Scheme (2014) and the Liscarroll’s Community Childcare Facility and Housing Project (2013), Habitat for Humanity (2012) and the Nás na Ríocgh Housing Association (2012). On St. Patrick’s Day 2019, the President invited front line staff of organisations supporting homeless people to Áras an Uachtaráin.
