An Arklow family have been forced to sleep on the floor of one of their mother’s houses for months after being evicted from the home they rented for two years and told that the only emergency accommodation available is a hostel 65km away in Carlow.

The parents, who are both currently unemployed, would like to remain anonymous, as they feel anything they say may damage their application for social housing, or even see them branded as trouble makers.
