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.

Yours etc.,

Seamus Dunphy,

Fianna Fail The Republican Party.
