Local Councillor Paul McCusker, who also volunteers for St Patrick's Soup kitchen, told Q Radio he spoke to a number of rough sleepers last night who said they're losing hope:
"The feeling amongst them was...well no-one cares. We might be next."
"I just thought - that's really sad to hear from homeless people on our streets"
"We need to change that and ensure that those people who do find themselves homeless do feel there's hope and support there".
