Darren and Christopher Doyle hold the eviction notice they received from Phoenix Park authorities last weekend
Claire Scott, on Dublin Live, reports:
“Homeless men have spoken out after their tents and belongings were taken by Phoenix Park authorities.
….The two men, Darren Doyle, 35, and Christopher Doyle, 28, were among an estimated 10-15 people who were issued eviction notices and were told to leave and remove their tents ‘as soon as possible’.”
….On Tuesday, they returned to the park to find their belongings and tents were removed despite the fact that they had left a note on cardboard in the door of the family sized tent explaining that they would be back to collect their items.”
I know you don’t normally do this but we need some help. This beautiful boy was found in the Phoenix Park today – no collar, no microchip, very friendly and well looked after. Someone has to be missing him. We can’t keep him so, if we can’t find his owners, we will have to bring him to the pound which we really don’t want to do… please share for us. Call 087 7454828.
