There were 34 people recorded as being homeless in Kilkenny during the last full week of September, according to the latest Homeless Report from Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
This is a minor drop from August's figure of 35 and places Kilkenny as the joint-third highest county for individual homelessness in the South-East, behind Waterford (66) and Tipperary (39) and tied with Carlow (34). Wexford's figure stands at 20.
The Department report defines homeless persons as being 'accommodated in emergency accommodation funded and overseen by housing authorities'.
The Department’s official homelessness statistics are published on a monthly basis and refer to the number of homeless persons accommodated in emergency accommodation funded and overseen by housing authorities during a specific count week, typically the last full week of the month.
