    The number of 18-24 year-olds homeless is at 100%, or damn near close to it. All those who are still living at home are also homeless.

    TheJournal did a piece a while back on the highest and lowest earning CEO’s in the charity sector – not only did Focus Ireland not reply to their request to publish salary details or respond to the article, Focus Ireland actually gets the most amount of public money per year of all the “charities”. Their CEO pay at the time was 125K even though their CEO was absent. The interim CEO was on the same money. Quite a snub to the hard pressed tax payer who should be demanding that any public money given to an NGO have completely publicly viewable records. That goes for everyone of them: charities/GAA/FAI/Horse Racing Ireland. We are being robbed blind by chancers and charlatans, Broadsheet providing them a platform as always.
