This morning.

Sarah Burns, in The Irish Times, reports:

More than 11,600 borrowers received advice and support from Abhaile, the State’s mortgage arrears and debt resolution service over a two-year period, according to a recent report.

The Department of Justice and Equality, and the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, who co-ordinate the scheme, published annual reports reviewing the take up and outcomes of Abhaile between July 2016 and June 2018.

Over that time, 11,695 borrowers received financial advice and negotiation support either from a personal insolvency practitioner (5,154 households) or a dedicated mortgage arrears adviser (4,960 households).

Messages of support for the Jobstown 23 are being collated for a new support page on Irish alt-lit zine The Bogman’s Cannon, ahead of their upcoming trials.

Agitator laureate Dave Lordan writes:

OK, at the request of the campaign, I am putting together a writers, artists and academics, etc, support page for the Jobstown 23, to be published on The Bogman’s Cannon.

PM me to get your few words of support added. The 23 victims of Joan Burton’s show trial will have their names dragged through the mud in the mainstream media and the support page will work as a counter to all that.
