Taoiseach accused of putting election before homeless crisis

The Fianna Fáil leader has accused the Taoiseach of insuring Fine Gael’s election manifesto is ready by November instead of insuring homeless people are in houses.

Micheál Martin was speaking at the opening of his party’s pre-Dail meeting in Longford.

He also criticised his constituency colleague Simon Coveney for standing down as Housing Minister.
