The Wheels On The Bus


From top: Interior of bus: Cork’s 96FM’s PJ Coogan (lefgt) with Patrick (centre) and Adrian Walsh

This morning.

Cork’s 96FM Opinion Line with PJ Coogan.

PJ Coogan speaking to Patrick Walsh and his son Adrian, who have been living in a disused bus near a river just 15 minutes from Cork City Centre.

Deirdre O’Shaughnessy  writes:

They heat the bus with diesel from their van. They use a chemical toilet, and they wash in the nearby river, which regularly floods. The windows of the bus blew in during the recent stormy weather.

Adrian has a brain injury and has numerous medical problems. His mother, who used to wash clothes and cook for the men, died suddenly in May.

They are currently receiving assistance from Saint Vincent de Paul and Headway but their situation is looking increasingly desperate as Winter approaches…

    Awful situation but it seems like they were far too reliant on the deceased Mum, she basically did everything.

        Just the one, never had a comment deleted, must be someone else.
        Neither should the one above be deletes as I only want to see a mature conversation on immigration.
        Unfortunately most people won’t touch it with a yardpole for fear of being called racist.
        And politicians definitely won’t.

          ok rominik, I just think it’s a bit of whatabouterie, our housing crisis is not because of refugees and it won’t be solved by ending immigration.
