She has been living in a tent outside the Dun Laoghaire council office for 36 days.

She is trying to get a flat for herself and her 3 children.

Housing officers Liz Clifford (205 4828) and Kathleen Holohan(205 4713) refuse to give her one.

Please ring them and tell them to change their minds.

They have a suitable available.

6/10/05.
Jake Tate is a bright perspicacious little boy.
His mother must be proud of his writing and reading ability. When he is older he will learn words like inequality and female eunuchism at Dun Laoighre, for now he needs a home.
Jake will realise his mother had to be a warrior because she has met with women
who have lost their empathy and sense of duty and care to others. I'd like to see him draw the weird sisters in the housing dept, all horns and pointy shoes. Good luck, Jake.

to Jake and his mother, and fair play to her for camping out for so long. This news piece needs to get a priority title so people get to know about it. I just stumbled on it. Having been homeless recently myself I sympathise and wish this family lots of luck in their fight, and hope they get great support.
The housing situation is the pits and needs a revolution
