People caught short in the capital will be helped by a pilot scheme that will reinstate public toilets.

Two public toilets will be introduced in the city centre as part of the programme, which had €200,000 allocated to it at last night's Dublin City Council budget meeting.

It is expected there will be one public toilet on either side of the city centre - north and south.

The pilot scheme will be introduced in the first half of 2019, it is understood.

The toilets will be pre-fabricated and will be similar to the "super-loo" currently used at Sandycove, Co Dublin.

Green Party councillor Ciarán Cuffe, who pushed the idea, said it could be expanded if it proves successful.
