Shelter Me is a story of defying bureaucracy to reach out and help the less fortunate in our society.

As the homeless problem in Ireland went unnoticed by those in power, the homeless, activists, celebrities and the public all came together and took the law into their own hands. They broke into and took over an empty government building, Apollo House, which was lying empty for years in Dublin’s City Centre. The public rallied, and within a week bedding, heat, water and food were supplied.
