Just yesterday we reported that 21-year-old Joy from Swords faced Christmas in a hotel room after declaring herself and her three-year-old daughter homeless.


But now, hours after talking to RTÉ Radio 1's Brian O'Connell, her situation has drastically improved as it has been revealed a listener has offered the mum a home.


Talking to Twitter to share the wonderful news, Brian tweeted: "Update on Joy, featured on @todaysor + facing prospect of Xmas homeless. A listener got in touch + offered her a house. Great result! [sic]"



Today with Seán O'Rourke also took to the social media site to share the wonderful update, writing: "We're so delighted to hear that Joy has been offered a new home from a listener, and that she will be in by #Christmas #Homelessness."




While it is unclear whether the home is just for the festive season or something more long-term, we're sure Joy is delighted to be able to finally put up a Christmas tree for her little girl.


The mum-of-one had declared herself homeless just weeks ago after being told to leave her rented accommodated  - despite having never missed a payment.



The house was being repossessed and she had ten days to leave.


"The day I declared myself homeless we had a pink suitcase, and [my daughter] actually thought we were going to the airport," she explaiend.


"But we weren’t, we were going to declare ourselves homeless.”


Aw, we're delighted for her.
