You're making panhanding profitable. Enabling self-destructive lifestyles. And they must think you're completely soft in the head if you're handing out fivers ffs. But I presume you're referring to the junkies, not the professionals.

There's a Romanian beggar back now this week to her usual spot she's had for years near where I work, her summer holiday back home is over, there is no way she is homeless but some saps still give her money. There used to be an Irish lad there but "they tuk his job" lol

Two months on the toilet? Must have been one hell of a dump.

Fail to understand why people get so stressed over these things.
You're the reason the rest of us get hassled so..

Pleanty of problems with it...
- Its intimidatory to lots of people.
- Its ****e for tourism
- You never know how some will react..ive had some yoke scream and shout at me because I said no I'd no cash while standing outside a pub at 3 in the afternoon.
- These people get plenty of my money as it is (tax)

Very good chance its for drugs

It means they see the city centre as a supply zone and hassle tourists

No one wants junkies dotted all around the city 24/7

There was a similar thread about this and the issue for me is having all the methadone clinics and needle exchanges in the city as opposed to where the people who need it are from. ie if they live in Kildare, go to Kildare.

I was asked for change for a "warm bed tonight" by a girl on south william street last night. i felt bad for her as it was a cold night but i'm not handing out drug money.

can anyone answer this conclusively - do homeless people need to pay for their hostel beds? if so, presumably they have to beg for cash. Are there free hostel beds? do they get the dole ?
