Interviewer sounds like he got his playschool degree in journalism this week.

Just once I'd like a journo to ask, ok if we give you a site with free utilities;
1. what guarantees can you give that you won't wreck the place?
2. what guarantees can you give that you won't negatively effect the community around you?

Imagine the stress on the council workers and Gardai.....

Pharmacies will be cleaning up later with all the pain killers been bought after dealing with that lot.

Bet all the kids aren't even in school.

Eviction stand-off between council and traveller families with up to 30 children

Mr Joyce said that council officials, a private security firm and members of the gardai were outside the location this morning ready to go in – but this didn’t happen.

He said that it is the families understanding that if they move to another piece of public land they will be evicted.

“This is all in the backdrop of a national accommodation crisis.”

He pointed out that without their caravans, the families would be homeless.

He said: “They are not asking the council to provide housing or a site tomorrow, what they are asking is that the council consider the situation they are in on humanitarian grounds.

“If families are in tents and they are homeless, do you go out and evict families that are homeless? You don’t. What you do is you go out on humanitarian grounds to understand why they are there.”

Martin Doherty (44) told Independent.ie that he has eight children who are living on site. “They are ranging in age from 16 down to 16 months old.

“My big worry from here is if we have to go out of here today, we will have to pull along the paths because there is no other place for the caravans and the kids will go out on the road and they will be knocked down.”

He said where they are at the moment is a safe place.

He added that there are very “decent people” living in the area and the kids are settled into school.

“If they give me any temporary place to move into, I will gladly move in. Anywhere in any direction, any location around here,” he added.

This story made the news at lunchtime

Pity the council officials, a private security firm and members of the gardai didn't move in and kick them out

"Nice" to see Bernard Joyce stick his head above the parapet. He's a lot quieter when anything negative comes out.

Do you mean 7 kids? That's what she has unless she is expecting another I don't know about

About €36k a year untaxed + whatever her temporary accommodation is costing.

I've seen first hand the mess these animals have created along this road. They have the neighbors terrorised. Laughable that they threw that line in about the kids attending school - The same kids going around trying door handles all day. Cretins. Like they give a **** about “safety”.

Expected more from the media on this, creating a sob story out of a load of criminal degenerates. A family of criminals with a history of causing trouble around the country. Its mind boggling.

Scum of the earth!

A friend of mine is a farmer, and has a policy that whenever he encounters travellers on his land, he approaches them while cradling his shotgun.

It has minimised his hassle from them, and it helps that all the local farmers club together when confronting them.

They were there illegally from the start, stop having kids or football size ones that seems the norm.

Why I am working to pay for their lifestyle is beyond me.

Some nice caravans, vans and cars.

Amazing how unemployed can afford all that.
