The Government could supply them with jobs to do, but the libtards will probably call it forced labour.
In Spain they have kiosks selling National Lotto cards and they are usually manned by people in wheelchairs.
f it's an unemployment blackspot then the unemployment figures would be high and disability figures would be no different from an affluent area.
But it's not, so that suggests that people are using disability as a means to avoid signing on and getting a higher benefit bracket.
Some idiot in power even said having a drink problem is a disability, so guess what happened???
Young lads started walking into welfare offices half drunk with a can of beer in hand claiming they were disabled.
Like all good ideas, it was abused by wasters.
You think 7,500 Irish people are rendered disabled every year? And there's no awareness campaigns? No calls for the causes of this astonishing wave of disability to be addressed? No riots outside the National Rehabilitation Hospital? Do you not wonder why a large percentage of the people you see in the streets aren't in wheelchairs? Why, if the equivalent of the population of Cork city is being somehow rendered disabled every 16 years, that nobody has noticed this astonishing phenomenon?
To put this in an even more startling context, that 7,500 figure only represents people of working age who have been disabled and can't work! If we are to believe the figures, over 9% of the people born in Ireland each year are rendered disabled while of working age! Since 33% of disabled people work, the true figure, just for people of working age rendered disabled each year would be over 11,000! And these disabilities must be extremely serious - I know two paraplegics that work full time, and there's a blind guy living near me that works, so these 7,500 that can't work at all must be in pretty bad shape.
If those figures represented reality, the whole country would have ground to a halt by now. It is well known in the Dept. that somewhere between 60% and 90% of those claiming a disability payment are either perfectly healthy, or have a minor ailment that would not adversely affect their ability to work. Disability in this country is a huge scam.
Gardaí have busted an organised crime gang known as the 'Hole in the Roof' group who officers suspect have been behind at least 45 robberies nationwide in the past year.
Detectives targeted the Romanian organised crime gang as part of a massive surveillance operation.
They suspect the group has been terrorising the country for more than five years.
The eastern European group is thought to have netted more than €1m worth of stolen cash and cigarettes and is believed to have been military trained.
Gardaí announced details of yesterday's operation which led to the arrest of four people - three men and one women - during the course of 11 dawn raids in Enniscorthy, Co Wexford.
All the suspects are Romanian nationals - a woman in her 20s and the three men aged in their 30s and 40s.
The four were still being held last night at various stations where they were being questioned under the provisions of anti-gang legislation.
Gardaí believe that the gang members have based themselves in Enniscorthy because of its easy access to Rosslare Europort, which is around half an hour's drive away.
"All the information indicates that they use the port to come in and out - it seems that Enniscorthy was deemed a handy location because if there was any hassle they could just flee the country through the port," a senior source said.
The major organised crime gang has links throughout the European Union and is suspected of a multitude of similar crimes throughout the UK and continental Europe.
A psychiatric nurse has been jailed for a year for assaulting another nurse with a syringe filled with sedating, anti-psychotic medication.
Kofi Kankam (48), of the Clarin, Athenry, denied a charge of assaulting Emer Hyland, causing her harm, at the psychiatric unit at University Hospital Galway on February 5 last year.
Ms Hyland, who is in her 20s, told the hearing at Galway District Court that gardaí came into the male ward with a patient that evening who was very unwell.
She was dealing with another patient at the time who had absconded. She was sitting in the nurse's station having just got off the phone from speaking to security about that patient when she suddenly felt a sharp pinch in her left side.
Nurse Donna Long and Kankam had been standing behind her. Ms Long was holding a kidney dish which contained two syringes, prepared for the patient gardaí had brought in.
She jumped up and saw blood coming from her side. She and Ms Long went into a linen closet to examine her side. Kankam came in and said he was sorry.
Management were made aware of the incident and while Ms Hyland was brought to A&E for treatment, Kankam was told to go home.
Ms Hyland said she had been traumatised by the incident. Counsel for the accused said his client had returned from Africa to face the charge and he asked the judge to suspend any sentence. "It should be ended," Judge Mary Fahy said, before imposing a 12-month sentence.
