“Join us as a community as we mark this important milestone and all the achivements of Apollo House, the volunteers and all supporters who help make it work. This is our first step towards ending the homeless crisis. Everyone that has been involved and has supported us in this movement, bring your pots and pans and join us on the streets in ensuring that the Minister for Housing Simon Coveney delivers on his promises, and steping up to help those most affected by the homesless crisis.”
The #HomeSweetHome campaign has occupied Apollo House and provided accomadation for 40 people over Christmas. The courts have ordered that they vacate the building at noon on the 11th. We will be gathering outside Connolly Hall to show our support with Apollo House.

The #HomeSweetHome campaign has occupied Apollo House and provided accomadation for 40 people over Christmas. The courts have ordered that they vacate the building at noon on the 11th. We will be gathering at the town hall in Newbridge at the same time to show our support.
We support Apollo House. We believe the actions of the homeless, activists and volunteers in occupying and running Apollo House are valuable and necessary to provide homes for homeless people while also forcing the government to address the issue of homelessness and the broader housing emergency. Apollo House has become a symbol of people power, a space of dignity and justice and we stand with them in solidarity.
This gathering is to show solidarity with what the Home Sweet Home campaign has done to date.
Many Wexford groups have been working for years to help – fighting an uphill battle all the way.
Finally there is hope.
It is for every citizen who cares about not only the homeless situation in Ireland – but every facet of it.
Wexford is not exempt from evictions/repossessions/sofa surfing/rough sleeping/emergency accommodation/ridiculous social housing list.
The country has awoken. Enough is enough.
Show your support and join us.
