Social workers say Dublin's homeless children and teenagers are at risk since this week's closure of two emergency care hostels in the north inner city. The hostels provided beds for homeless children, aged 12 - 18, for up to three months before more suitable accommodation was sourced. As neither building met the new national childcare standards, the Health Service Executive had been advised in 2008 to find alternative accommodation for the 20 young people currently resident.

Authorities are planning to build a more up-to-date unit in Portrane, Co. Dublin
