Open thread: What words do you associate with homelessness?

How do you think about people who have no permanent home? We want to hear.

LATEST NATIONAL FIGURES put the number of homeless people in Ireland at almost 4,000 and those working to reduce the problem say it’s only getting worse.

As part of‘s series on homelessness, we’re looking at all aspects of the homeless crisis, and all day today, we’ve been asking what you have to say about it. We’ll be using your feedback later as part of the series.

Here are a few questions to start you off:

  • What does the word ‘homeless’ mean to you?
  • What words would you use to describe homeless people in Ireland?
  • Why do you think people become homeless?

Over to you – answers in the comments section below…
