Campaigners for the unemployed say people are still struggling to find work despite a drop in jobless figures.
Figures released by the Central Statistics Office yesterday show that the unemployment rate now stands at just over 6%.
The Irish National Organisation of the Unemployed will hold its annual conference in Dublin today.
Spokesperson Brid O'Brien outlined what will be discussed.
She said: "So the theme of the conference is supporting unemployed people for 30 years.
"One of the motions at the conference is looking at the Government re-investing in community organisations, organisations that work on the ground with people who are unemployed and experiencing social exclusion and who are finding it difficult to find work."
