Irish mosque to offer homeless shelter during Storm Emma

It's inviting those in need to take shelter in its large events hall as forecasters predict temperatures as low as minus 10 later this week.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Clonskeagh Mosque has announced it's opening its doors to homeless people in Dublin during Storm Emma.

It's inviting those in need to take shelter in its large events hall as forecasters predict temperatures as low as minus 10 later this week.

After providing shelter during Storm Ophelia and a polar low in November, the mosque will again offer people a place to stay, sleeping bags and warm meals.

Summayah Kenna, Head of Community Welfare Department with the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland, explained that they are working closely with Dublin City Council and homeless organisations to be able to provide the service.

"We will have a security team on duty at night, and maintenance teams have been alerted to make sure there is sufficient heating in the building, especially late at night", she said.

Those taking shelter in the large events hall will be given vouchers which will allow them claim two warm meals a day from the mosque's in-house restaurant.

Sleeping bags will also be provided to those seeking shelter between 5pm on Tuesday February 27th to 10am on Sunday 4th March. Those hours will be extended, depending on weather conditions.
