People Before Profit TD Bríd Smith says there could be a “tsunami of evictions.”

Her comments come after the Government announced its plans to end the eviction ban at the end of the month.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said yesterday the ban won’t be brought back even if there’s a rise in homelessness.


The pausing of the construction of 58 schools has been described as a “sucker punch” to parents and pupils.

Despite the building coming to a halt for now, Education Minister Norma Foley has vowed the projects will be completed.


German police say a shooting at a Jehovah’s Witness church in Hamburg has left eight people dead.

It’s thought the person responsible is among those killed, and police say they’re now looking into a motive.

A number of other victims have been taken to hospital.
