155 people in Kildare were homeless in March.

Dublin Simon says it's worried the latest Homeless Report is 'the calm before the storm.'

The number of adults accessing emergency accommodation has fallen to it's lowest level in nearly four years at 8060.

155 people in Kildare were homeless in March, an increase of 1 person on February.

The Dept. of Housing says 157 people were homeless in Meath last month and 26 in Wicklow.

The three counties comprise the Mid East Region, where 55  families, and 121 children, were in emergency accommodation.

In all, 5,894 adults and 2,166  children were homeless last month.

Caoimhe O'Connell is Dublin Simon Communications Manager.

She joined Eoin Beatty on this morning's edition of Kildare Today.
