A rally will take place in Castlebar this Saturday, calling for action from the Government to deal with the worsening housing crisis.

The Mayo Homeless & Housing Coalition  - which includes trade unions, political groups, charities and other organisation - are organising the Homes4All rally at Market Square in Castlebar, which gets underway at 1pm.

They claim that affordable secure housing should be a basic human right.

The coalition has a number of demands -including a ban on so-called vulture and cuckoo funds from the housing sector, more rent controls, and more affordable houses and apartments for people on modest and average incomes.

This is a socially distanced protest with mask wearing advised.
