The Government is being criticised for not telling the European Commission about the country's housing crisis.
Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has said it is an insult to those affected.
Irish campaigners will travel to Brussels later to discuss Europe's housing problems in the European Parliament.
Lynn Boylan thinks it is wrong not to ask our EU neighbours for help.
“The EU Commission has previously confirmed that the Irish Government has never raised the housing crisis in Ireland in the European Institutions,” said Boylan.
“While our delegation will listen to other European speakers, it will be important to make very clear that the austerity policies demanded by the EU and implemented by Fine Gael are having a huge human cost in Ireland.
“Our discussions will also include topics such as the Housing Crisis and Rent Certainty as well the availability of EU Funding for Housing. I am hopeful our visit to Brussels will bring a new angle to the Housing and Homelessness discussions taking place in Ireland and that we might learn from the experiences of others in Europe.”
