'Mammy what are we going to do?', mother tells of heartbreak after six kids sleep in Garda station

A young mum who slept in a Garda station in Dublin with six of her children has said she is heartbroken.

Margaret Cash, 28, was forced to sleep in Tallaght Garda Station due to lack of emergency homeless accommodation on Wednesday night.

“I was heartbroken that I couldn’t do more for them as a mother, I was ashamed to see my kids splattered round a station floor like that,” she said.

Ms Cash and her seven children – Johnny, 11, Tommy, 10, Rebecca, nine, Miley, seven, Jim, four, Rocky, two, and Andy, one – have been in emergency accommodation for over a year after her landlord went bankrupt and their house was repossessed.

She has been in different one-night emergency family accommodations ever since.

This is Ms Cash’s third time being sent to a Garda station with nowhere to go.

She circulated pictures of her children sleeping there on social media after she said she could not take any more.

She would have been pregnant at 17. And given the frequency of the other kids, I presume this is a traveller family.

Their "culture" dies not work. This is all too common. Philip Boucher Hayes tweet implies some violent thug of a man is out there, having created this mess.

We need whatever community or extended family presided over this train wreck to shun their scum.

All societies around the world shun scum. As do social/pack animals. There is a reason for this.

Ditto posher abusive types..

in decent healthy societies, women whom give birth are looked upon as the spiritual backbone of the nation.
in the sick West, women are encouraged to follow materialistic and consumerist lifestyles. its no surprise that just this week, its reported that womens mental health problems have doubled in 20 years.

The state and well meaning people are throwing money at homeless charities. The Simon communities have now over 20 million cash reserves and 265 staff in Dublin costing over 9 million per year. The state is also throwing money at land lords accommodating Irish and social welfare fraudsters from outside of Ireland and continue to bring more fuckers in to take available stock.

The state, during the recession had a fantastic opportunity to build social housing, keeping employment in the construction industry and preventing the current situation with shortage of housing for the workers and the dossers. What they are now spending on HAP and giving to the homeless industry would service the interest on loans for thousands of homes. They could have helped too by keeping big employers outside of the city centre and relocating some colleges to somewhere like Portlaoise instead of increasing their sizes within the Dublin area thereby putting more pressure on housing stock and using up available stock of land. Grangegorman is an example.

But it would appear that just like the UK there is a plan not to provide social housing but to allow private firms, preferably large ones to own as much properties as they can.

What are you saying? It's better to have children at 17 than having sickly milksops at 40 with IVF.

Pension/hedge funds will be buying up any new property builds more and more if they are allowed, whole apartment blocks at a time. Keep the old system ticking over, but if rents continue to rise it will not matter, the return of mass tenement's will only keep that going so long. Its a broken economic model, and is a default race to the bottom. There will be a collapse at some point, the question is how long they can drag it out.
