Dublin City Council to debate motion calling for injunction to be lifted from Apollo House sit-in

An emergency motion is being submitted to Dublin City Council today calling for the official recognition of Apollo House in Dublin.

The NAMA-owned property has remained occupied over the weekend by activists providing accommodation for the homeless.

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."
