Newstalk reports:

“Dublin West TD, Ruth Coppinger, along with three Anti-Austerity councillors are currently occupying a NAMA housing estate under construction at Diswellstown Manor site. She’s calling on NAMA to make the units social and affordable homes.”

“Deputy Coppinger said that she, along with 25 homeless families from the local area and some local people, have occupied one of the NAMA homes that have been built.”

“‘This housing estate has about 120 houses and it’s going to be sold on the open market for a very high price but yet we have 120 homeless families in Blanchardstown alone in emergency accommodation.'”

I know you don’t normally do this, but my mates dog ‘Bobby’ is missing in Castleknock/Carpenterstown Dublin 15 since 1pm today and am particularly worried because of this storm. He’s a Japanese Spitz with a blue collar.

Update: 9:29pm

Bobby is home! A lady found him and posted a pic on Facebook which made it’s way back to my friend.

Yay!
