    What does it achieve? 131 people arrived from Greece today. We're told they're Syrian refugees, but there's no proof of who they are. How many houses are needed to house them and why are the people behind this Occupy stunt not protesting that 131 migrants will be housed ahead of all the homeless Irish people?

    Those people could afford to pay thousands of euro to people traffickers and Greece is not a war zone so there's nothing to flee from only flee to a life time on the gravy train in Ireland, in a few years the government will pay for them to be naturalised. Then they'll be entitled to even more than the homeless Irish folks.

    Musicians and singers Glenn Hansard and Damien Dempsey have always held political views, it's reflected in their songs, particularly Dempsey's so it's not like they're jumping on the bandwagon or see themselves as Boner or Geldof.

    Jim Sheridan just happened to find out about the initiative last week, he spoke on the Ray D'Arcy show today.

    John Connors, whatever you think of him, is a good advocate for the travellers, articulate and confident.

    Brendan Ogle is a principled, fair and honest man. He has integrity and is passionate about his cause. The more I hear his views the more I like him.

    What do they all have in common? Passion. A f˙cking heart. Kudos to them all.

    But of course I forgot - You're a landlord!

    The Main people behind this initiative are The Irish Housing Network and Rosie Leonard.

    The others I listed above are just lending their support, but they're the ones the media have latched on to.

    Not wishing to be unkind, but the people involved in this are junkies and street drinkers.

    Does anyone seriously think that someone with children is going to be sleeping in Apollo House?

    Such people are given emergency accommodation - not the optimum solution I know and people have lost their homes unfairly - but they are not sleeping on the streets.

    " john connors is a good advocate for the travelling community "

    well he is an apt spokesperson , il give you that

    the guy is a grievance monger of the highest order , he is also let away with absolute murder by the media and apparently can say anything with immunity ( no matter how innaccurate or slanderous ) and be sure of not even the slightest challenge by sole virtue of the fact he is a member of a PC sacred cow group , odious cretin

    Oh the naivety! I'm sure that their hearts are in the right place, but just like Band Aid, they'll soon discover that REAL charitable assistance is not just for Christmas, and is also open to all sorts of abuse that they would never have deemed possible. How many times does the parable have to be repeated before people realise it makes common sense? "Give a man a fish you feed him for a day, teach him to fish you feed him for a lifetime." Short term measures are all well and good, but at the risk of repeating myself, Jonathan Corrie sold TWO properties in order to feed his addiction and died in a doorway. There is no point in keeping people alive on a daily basis purely to gratify the dealers, be they drugs, or alcohol, or prescription tablets, or even the "charities" that people become dependent on. We need to focus on education and family planning to lift people out of the poverty cycle. But of course no-one wants to do that lest it disturb the status quo and their "human rights" to live a life as they please, regardless of the cost to society.

    We have a serious housing crisis, thousands of empty places all over the country, fair dues to these people for doing what they have.
