        no Dav the bottom gone out of that particular morket a good while back, they’re a net cost.
        you’re much better off getting into property imo. or Bitcoin.

      Surely we shouldn’t be surprised that relying on charities to deal with a crisis which continues to grow through political incompetence and inaction is incredibly inefficient, especially given how poorly regulated our charities have turned out to be, but does allow people to start scapegoating charities.

        This is why the concept of a State was developed – to formulate and regulate proper coordinated solutions to societal problems, not relying on the vagaries of charitable organisations, (however well intentioned) which are now morphing into large companies with huge overheads and well paid CEO’s and very large morkeshing budgets. The state and civilised services have been dismantled, dis-invested and profitable services commodified to private entities and the charities try to fill the void. Backwards we’re going.

          Your characterisation of the charity sector is ill-informed and dangerous. Most people work with the best of intentions and limited resources. Please read Benfacts for proper insight into charities before tarring all with same brush. This is why donations are down and more people suffering.

    Alice Leahy said as much recently.
    Far too many charities with naïve workers hat have little understanding of the real issues and even less of an understanding of how to solve problems.
    She stated money is NOT the issue and that money was being wasted. Tales of people being woken up 4 times a night by different charities offering soup.

      So you agree that our right wing government is failing these Irish citizens who have nowhere to sleep, right? And they are failing because of their right wing ideology of greed and selfishness and apathy for your neighbour? And that they need to do much, much better? Good man.

        Successive governments have failed.They have also failed to reform the HSE which effectively holds this country to ransom and itself fails its community every single day.
        No government has the balls to tackle it and I wouldn’t hold out any hope that a left wing government would do any different.

        So you actually reply to your own comments, but as Mary… thats a trick boys play when they have no friends.

      how many more families would have been evicted out on to the streets to free up hotel rooms / Air Bnb, for the rugby supporters?

            Where’s the inequality? What do you know about the social economy of a rugby fan? Sounds like you’re making very broad assumptions
