Cllr Francis Timmons is running as an Independent Candidate for Dublin Mid-West says ‘’If elected I will lobby and call for a Referendum to be held that Every Child is entitled to a home free from Abuse and Neglect  , I am calling on any candidates running for the Dail to publicly support this and to commit to supporting it if they are elected. There is no sense of urgency in the delivery and building of Homes . Many Children are growing up in Hotels , Hubs or Direct Provision while many more are in Homeless services , if we are serious about cherishing all the children of the Nation Equally we need to deliver homes for Children where they are safe. I believe that this human right should be enshrined in the Irish Constitution.’’
