Homeless people were sleeping in a doorway when their belongings were set on fire last night.

Tony Walsh, a volunteer who hands out food to the people living on Dublin's streets, came across the scene while doing the rounds last night.

Walsh came across a couple of homeless people who had been sleeping on cardboard, surrounded by bags of rubbish for warmth, when a thug set the cardboard on fire. Walsh said,

What kind of people do things like this? Our Irish government really needs to take action immediately and open up emergency beds before somebody gets seriously injured on our streets or worse still dies through hypothermia on the streets of Dublin.
