The Connell family from Blanchardstown, Dublin, have been made homeless through a combination of rent allowance cuts and rack-renting by their landlord. Fingal County Council have no houses. The family cannot get any alternative rented accommodation within rent allowance limits. They are split up…the family are staging a protest at Joan Burton’s Department of Social Protection on Store Street in Dublin tomorrow at 11am, asking ‘Where is the social protection’? They will be supported by their family and members of the local Anti-Austerity Alliance.
