Rough sleeper dies after being found unresponsive on Dublin quay


A man, who was found unresponsive on the streets of the nation's capital on Monday evening, has died in hospital.

The individual, who is known to the city's homeless services, was discovered in the vicinity of the Four Courts at 8pm, and subsequently rushed to hospital.

The deceased, who is understood to have been a Lithuanian national, did not recover, and passed away in the Mater hospital.

Commenting on his death and the death of another rough sleeper in Ranelagh this week, Homelessness charity the Peter McVerry Trust expressed remorse over the city's homelessness crisis.

"Unfortunately, there have been an unprecedented number of deaths involving people sleeping rough since late August."

"The latest two deaths in Dublin bring to seven the number of people sleeping rough that have died in the past 12 weeks."
