    And do you expect the government to have a 4+ bedroom house lying around for such cases?

    My father grew up with 8 other brothers and sisters and two parents in a 3 bed house. People’s expectations are too high.

    She said there was no room for one child. Are you seriously claiming that one small child could not be fitted into a house that is deemed suitable for an adult and 5 kids? Is the mother behaving responsibly in forcing them to sleep on hard chairs in a Garda station when a house was available to them? It would probably be fair to say that most of us who come from large families were squeezed into 'unsuitable' accommodation for much of our childhood.

    You have no idea of her circumstances. People lose their spouse through various means. People lose their jobs.

    You have no idea what is happening here.

    Exactly why do some believe their own children is someone else's responsibility you can't afford to bring them up in a stable environment then don't have them.

    Maybe the man/men did a runner?

    Nobody seems bothered that a woman is left to rear her children on her own. They're too busy blaming her.

    Who said she’s looking for that? The emergency accommodation didn’t have room for two of her children last night. Do you understand that?

    Reading the comments in the journal and one commentator had her face book page screen saved . In it she had commented three weeks ago she finally got a house in Tallaght. I sure thought we are being played by the homeless business sector once again as it had gone away from being front page news.
