Homelessness In Clare Set To Increase – McNamara

A former Mayor of Clare is warning that homelessness here will rise in the coming months, as rental costs surge.

Councillor Tom McNamara says he has seen an increase in the number of people coming to him for help, as they’re being forced to move out of their homes, and are unable to afford a replacement.

He adds that the problem is being compounded by a lack of readily available social housing.


Searches of property websites also show that only a small number of homes are available in Clare within the HAP limits – Councillor McNamra says it’s a worrying situation.
