The March for the Homeless Group conducts nightly visits of people sleeping rough in Dublin.
Darren Bradley writes:
This man came up to us last evening very distressed with a €200 fine all because he dropped his last €2 on the tracks [at Tara Street station] and jumped down to get it. He was fined €100 for this act of “Trespass” and he alleges when the Garda asked for his address and he gave his family address the Garda told him that was a false address and fined him another €100…
The man was unaware that he was committing these offences he was just trying to get his €2 back as this is a lot to him….
