Michael O'Brien is an Anti Austerity Alliance Councillor for Beaumont Donaghmede, and he wants the shelter approved.
Mr O'Brien said: "I've submitted an emergency motion commending the action of the activists and celebrities who have seized Appolo House and rendered it habitable for rough sleepers, and furthermore calling for the injunction to be lifted from the activists.
"Practically speaking also, the motion is calling for Dublin City council to recognise the time served there by the rough sleepers, from the point of view of their progress on the priority homeless housing list."
