    It’s disgraceful, and the fact that this has been building and building as a huge social issue for the past number of years just shows that the FG government care sweet tootle all about fixing it. They are failing on every level.

    And NAMA will continue to sell swathes of apartments blocks to FG chum Vulture Funds for a few thousand euros who will then evict tenants to double the rents.

    A scaldy fuppin pox on the lot of them for this.

    Ive been working as homeless outreach in local authorities for the past 12 years and next week is my last week – i’m done. Despite working my bottom off and housing as many as i could, the numbers are through the roof. Says it all really, from where i’ve sat all i could see was policy failures, missed opportunities at local and national levels, idiots in charge and absolute hoo hahs out to make a profit.
