A rising number of young people who have served in the Defence Forces are falling on hard times and are experiencing homelessness, the new CEO of the Irish organisation for ex-service personnel has warned.

Cormac Kirwan of Óglaigh Náisiúnta na hÉireann (ONE), a charity offering housing and support for veterans of the Defence Forces, has called on the Government to set up a “one stop shop” similar to the hubs recently established here for Ukrainian refugees, to make it easier for struggling veterans to access State services.
