Chatting about the news that Gallagher will help the charity their head of communications Brian McLoughlin said: “Liam and his team are fully aware of the homelessness crisis in Ireland. He wants his fans to do their bit by encouraging fans to donate a coat to us.
People who donate will be entered into a draw to meet the star
In return, ICHH, people will be entered into a draw to win a meet-and-greet and two tickets to Liam’s shows at the end of the month.
Winter has hit Ireland already with winter showers threatening the capital this week, so we are inundated with orders for warm clothes from the people we are assisting seven days a week on the streets of Dublin.”
Ireland is experiencing its worst homelessness crisis in history since the foundation of the history. Official government figures show 10,338 people in Ireland are dependant on emergency accommodation.
Housing crisis at tipping point in Ireland
The sad news is that one in every three homeless people in Ireland today is a child. Charity campaigners actually claim these figures are significantly higher.
They are critical of the the government’s figures which don’t include women’s refuges, Direct Provision centres and rough sleepers. Liam will play the 3 Arena on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November 2019.
