Sleeping rough

A homeless man who slept on High Street, Kilkenny last night

The growing problem of homelessness and of those sleeping rough in Kilkenny city was magnified this morning by this haunting image of a man sleeping in a shop way on High Street.

Anecdotally there is growing evidence to suggest that more and more people are sleeping out in the open around the city every night while the  overall homelessness problem in the city and county continues to deepen.
