Dear Editor,

The way the Government deals with the homeless issue should be crucial to the survival of the government. If drastic measures are not made then Fianna Fail should bring down the government. This is more severe than the Frances Fitzgerald saga which dominated the headlines before Christmas.

I met a rough sleeper in John Street on Monday. I gave her €3. I asked her why she didn't go to a hostel? Full up, she said, but I was next on the list. My heart went out to her. I saw another woman outside Penney's covered in blankets.

We need a Fr. Peter McVerry trust here in Waterford. Homelessness is the worst part of the wh ole social housing crisis.

Yours etc.,

Seamus Dunphy,

Fianna Fail The Republican Party.
