    Disgraceful. This government are a pack of jokers. A fupping poem is all we’ve gotten from Enda..a few lines of non rhyming gibberish.

      “a few lines of non rhyming gibberish”

      An apt description of Kenny’s political career.

    They are not forcing anyone to become homeless. These people have had years to make alternative arrangements. “horrible parents willing to pretend their kids are homeless so that they can get a free house” is more accurate.

      In fairness, the petition is talking about tenants of buy-to-let landlords becoming homeless. So, it is more likely a case of a few months’ notice, rather than years.

      having a go at the homeless? really lad, i know you think it makes you ‘edgy’ and cool but there is a name for those who like to kick others when they’re down.

    I was in town last Saturday night for the first time in a long time. I was absolutely stunned at the amount of homeless on the streets. Yeh you always got 1 or 2 but it was on every street and every corner. Absolutely shocking

    This is fact-free stuff.

    Dublin City Council is the cause of more repossession orders in Dublin than all the banks are: economic-incentives.blogspot.com/2016/06/repossession-orders-received-by-dublin.html

    It takes between three and six years of non-payment of a mortgage to get eviction in Ireland. Along the way you will get multiple adjournments if you point to your family situation.

    AIB have written off over €1 billion in mortgage arrears and say 1% of arrears cases make it to repossession (all of this on Oireachtas record btw)

    The man on the Ha’penny bridge photo (always sits on the right of it as you go from north to southside) is SOUND.
