Dublin council officials, gardai and homeless support groups have met to discuss how best to aid people sleeping rough on the 650m-long boardwalk on the banks of the River Liffey. Officially inaugurated in December 2000, the 2 million Liffey Boardwalk has developed a reputation as a no-go area, with around 50 drugs-related arrests being made between April and June this year. Violent fights between drug addicts threatening homeless people on the boardwalk prompted the emergency meeting. Lack of day-care facilities for the homeless were seen as one of the causes of the areas degeneration.
