Local residents and businesses are set to stage a huge protest against proposals to open Ireland's largest homeless shelter in Dublin City.

A tourist hotel on Aungier Street is set to be turned into a shelter called Avalon House which would be able to house 150 people.

It is being alleged that businesses and residents in the area had not been consulted about the plans.

The End of the United Kingdom May Be Nearing

  The End of the United Kingdom May Be Nearing Elections were supposed to settle existential questions over Brexit—instead, they’re raising bigger ones over the nature of the union.That such a comment could be framed as a bold prediction rather than a platitude shows the scale of the chaos the country has found itself in since voting to leave the European Union in 2016. While England is split over how—or whether—to deliver Brexit and move the country forward, the political dynamics in the three other constituent parts of the U.K. seem more about whether the country should exist at all.

"There's DePaul which is right beside it which basically deals with people who have addiction issues, you have the Salvation Army just on the corner of Aungier Street and you also have a Peter McVerry Trust facility on Aungier Street anyway."

The protest is due to get underway at 5pm on Friday evening.
