The woman and her kids should not be homeless but there is something about this story that is not right.
She got a house on the 17th July in Tallaght. Why suddenly homeless on a Thursday? She said something about the council not paying the rent.
This whole thing seems a bit staged. They are sleeping on the chairs with no bedding but she has other pictures titled breakfast in the gards and they are all sitting on duvets.
She is 11 years on the housing list so on it since she was 18 before any child was born. Not a good system by any stretch of the imagination.
Where did she go today? Looks like she went to a home somewhere.
If people aren't taking properties offered to them there are plenty folk arriving every day to leech of the state that will happily accept what accommodation is on offer.

I suspect from her quote about the council not paying the rent that she was on a HAP payment. Under HAP the council pays all the rent directly to the landlord, and the tenant pays a contribution based on their means to the council. If the tenant fails to pay the money to the council, the council stops the whole payment to the landlord. This is one of the reasons some landlords will not take HAP as if they get a tenant who does not pay the council, they are in effect punished. Due to her large family her HAP contribution would have been nominal,

A bench warrant was issued for the apprehension of Margaret Cash from 22 Sundale Villas in Tallaght.

She was due in the District Court sitting at Gorey to meet a charge alleging that on October 5, 2013 she was in possession of stolen property at Kilconnib in Monageer.

A solicitor was in court to suggest that there had been what he called a 'break down in communication' between Ms Cash and her legal representative. An application was made to have the case taken by Detective martin Brauders adjourned in the hope that this breakdown could bed repaired.

However, Garda Inspector Pat Cody felt obliged to seek the warrant, pointing out that this was not the first time that Ms Cash had failed to appear.​

Stolen items

Enniscorthy Guardian12 Dec 2017

A woman who was found in a drunken state in a car full of property that had been stolen during the course of a burglary in Enniscorthy appeared before the court last week charged with handling stolen goods.

Margaret Cash (27) of 22 Sundale Villas, Tallaght, Dublin, was present in court and pleaded guilty to the charge, dating from October 5, 2013.

Detective Garda Martin Brauders told the court that on the night in question, gardaí received a call about a car acting suspiciously in the Drumgoold area.

The vehicle was eventually located and a chase ensued. The car pulled in at Kilconnib, Monageer, and some of the occupants fled the scene, leaving the defendant and another lady behind. Garda Brauders said that the defendant was in an intoxicated state when arrested and had to be taken to hospital as she was ill. He said that the property, consisting of a laptop, a flat-screen TV, pieces of Waterford Crystal and 20 rugs, was owned by Mr Andy O’Brien and had been taken during the course of a burglary.

Garda Brauders said that he was happy that the defendant, whose only previous convictions were road traffic matters, had taken no part in the burglary and that she played a minor part in the whole incident.

Cash’s solicitor said that she was a mother of seven and was facing a difficult time at the moment as the family were being made homeless. He said that they are currently going site to site and are finding it very hard.

Upon hearing all the evidence, Judge Haughton opted to give Cash the benefit of the Probation Act Section 1.2, recording a conviction, but not imposing a penalty.​

Over a thousand euro a month in Child benefit, single mothers on top of that. Piss off she can't find a place. Move to the country and rent a private house. Get some maintenance of the father/s.

Sick of these bull shit stories when there is genuine people on the streets.

Mar 16th 2017 - HOUSING MINISTER SIMON Coveney has reaffirmed his commitment to ensuring that hotels will no longer be used to house homeless families by July of this year... Fine Fail were going to end homelessness by 2011.

Interesting article from May last year by Ross Maguire, New Beginnings:

Welcome to the world of funds.

In the US there is a developed system of investment managers who invest money across a range of assets to ensure a return. When you put €100 into a pension, or when you pay car insurance, the money must go somewhere, and usually it is into these funds.

One of the assets they invest in is “distressed debt”, there is plenty such debt in Ireland Since 2012 funds have been acquiring distressed debt in Ireland; these are the “vulture funds” that some populist politicians and commentators would have us dread.
When Michael Noonan referred to the role of a vulture as cleaning up dead animals littered across the landscape, people wrongly, although perhaps intentionally, juxtaposed this as vulture funds feeding on ordinary borrowers. This is nonsense. The vultures clean up our debt overhang and allow us to get on with life – and that is precisely what they are doing. People who are in debt, whether to banks or to funds, are protected. Firstly they are protected by the contract itself, and this does not change when a loan is sold.

Secondly, any debt must be serviced by a licensed entity, which is bound by central bank codes. It is a criminal offence for a fund to instruct a servicer to operate other than in accordance with those codes. Thirdly, every debtor can avail of the personal-insolvency system. This is a very powerful system, especially when it comes to family homes. A court now has power to direct a debt write-down where it is necessary to enable a home to be saved. Fourthly, and perhaps most importantly, creditors do not want to enforce. They want to come to an arrangement. The funds are the very best to do deals and today, all across Ireland, deals are being done by funds allowing people to move on.


Homes are protected
Earlier this week, Mick wallace TD recorded a text sent to his NamaLeaks phone line where the texter complained that a fund was illegally trying to sell his mother’s house without a court order. It is not possible under Irish law to sell a “home” without a court order.The innuendo is that a little old lady is being thrown out of her home by a fund, absent the involvement or protection of a court. This is false It is possible to sell an investment property through the appointment of a receiver, which does not involve a court. A receiver can only be appointed where the loan is in default and where the fund has complied with the Central Bank codes, which are onerous. Receivers are generally appointed to investment properties when the owner is not paying the mortgage and often keeping the rents.

But the clear innuendo in the NamaLeaks text is that a little old lady is being thrown out of her home by a fund, absent the involvement or protection of a court. This is false.

We have repeatedly been warned of a tsunami of repossessions prompted by vulture funds. The opposite is the truth. There have been almost no repossessions. Of the 400 in the last quarter of 2016, the majority were abandoned properties and voluntary surrenders. If a fund was involved, the remaining debt will likely have been written off in full and in some cases the fund will even pay €5,000 towards moving costs.

Mortgage-to-rent is a solution for some whereby the home is sold to an approved housing body and the former borrower continues to occupy the home under a social-housing provision.

The funds, despite having a small share of distressed home loans, account for nearly 70 per cent of all mortgage-to-rents completed in the State. AIB has completed less than 1 per cent of the total.

Virus of sentimentality
Populism feeds on sentimentality. My concern is that sentimentality which, like a virus, attaches itself to the genuine empathy felt towards people in difficulty, will produce very unjust results. Let there be no doubt: there are large numbers of people who can pay but won’t pay. These people are not the victims and they do not deserve sympathy.

For the genuine cases the protections and restructuring options now exist, and funds are best-placed to work this through. Banks are not meant to be in this business, and leaving the loans on their balance sheets hurts us all, especially those future borrowers who will face punitive interest rates to pay for those who are gaming the system. It is high time to get real. It can no longer be acceptable for an investor to pay himself from rents that are meant to be repaying debt and it is no longer acceptable for homeowners to refuse to pay what they can, just because it does not suit them to pay.

If an Irish bank were to announce the sale of distressed loans to a fund, there would be an outcry. But those who cry need to do their homework and look at the evidence. Sentimentality will just shift the bill to somebody else, and that somebody else is likely to be you.

Those kids should be taken off her and put in care. She had to leave the last place because she wasn't paying her rent. She was getting 2800 a month HAP. She had 8 months to find a new house. She is a settled Anti social community with lots of relatives who could help her out. She did this as a publicity stunt to skip the housing queue. Only last week she posted pictures of 3 very large pieces of waterford crystal that she'd bought. Please don't feel sorry for this parastic bitch, we need to stop this crap where she can breed like a rat, never do a days work and get a rent supplement of almost 3 grand a month. There are rural towns and villages all over Ireland that are dying. She has no job, never had and never will, the same as the father of those kids. Fook her down the country and the same with the rest of the work shy parasites like her and send a message loud and clear that the days of taking the piss are over.
