    We mustn't forget the "slave factory" incident in Nobber not so long ago (cyp thread here: Slave factory uncovered in Meath - expect the Moditariat to cover it up and Indo article here: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/distressed-man-leads-to-discovery-of-23-slaves-in-meath-1.2762326)

    29 foreign nationals with little English corralled into a remote rural Meath house. Seemed to be transported to/from there en masse to a waste recycling company each day accompanied by "handlers", employment arranged via an Irish recruitment agency. The wages of over 20 people each week were paid into a single bank account it seems (was surprising the recruitment agency didn't think this situation peculiar when setting up all the bank mandates in the first place). Eventually one of the group, a middle-aged man with little English, made a run for a nearby garage (about a kilometre away) and raised the alarm with a crudely written sign with the words "help” and “garda”, eventually leading to a Garda raid of the place (30 Gardaí, helicopter etc.) about two hours later. Overall quite a strange situation. Amazing no one noticed this peculiar arrangement earlier.

    Yes the elephant in the room. Travellers. For such a small community, pretty rampant vile anti social behaviour.

    This is the second such case that I'm aware of. How many more?
    Travellers 'who kept, beat and starved slaves were organised crime ring running the family business'

    Culture, eh!

    The news said some of their fortune was spent on cosmetic surgery. I would hate to see the "before" photos.

    You are always posing on these threads, for a few years now, as one of the chief sh#tstirrers and hate mongers

    & if i'm not mistaken,
    this is the 2nd instance of ........ ahem .......... 'Travellers' being involved in the heinous crime of slavery in England ?

    when I heard of this first, the first thought that struck me was .............. 'Travellers' ?,
    as is the case whenever I hear of old people being attacked/killed in their homes, here in Ireland.
