That would require self-awareness.

She has none.

Margaret shared the following story

Travellers feel they have been 'left to die' on rat-infested site

‘We don’t want to live like this, but we have nowhere else to go.’

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/soci...site-1.3788718

Funny enough it's written by her friend Kitty Holland

The comments on the IT FB page are not what Kitty was planning on

More people sympathetic to the Rats and stating that if you dump rubbish you will attract rats

Others stating that the sites have been refurbished before yet are now stripped of wiring etc again

Yet apparently it's up to the taxpayer to sort the issues again and provide the families with housing

Bit irresponsible imo to bring further children into the halting site if things were that bad

Just heard about Peter Casey diaries - on Pat Kenny show on Newstalk, starting tomorrow. They mentioned the traveller issue - brought up when he was looking at getting into the Aras - so it will be interesting to see who they bring in to go against him. Pavee Point?

40 quid a week per family. I'd expect to live in a sh*thole for that amount too. That's why I work.

Hahaha yeah me too. I'd happily pay 60 a week if I could get away with it.

40 a week in rent? Willing to pay more for comfort. Here's an idea so, pay your 40 for rent and use the other 20 you are willing to pay for bins.

That would only attract the settled people to dump their rubbish at the halting site

More demands for culturally appropriate accommodation :

(Winning comment;
"Surely they know someone who could tidy the site up a bit. Do a bit of block paving even lay a bit of tarmac, fix a broken tile on roof. Get a bit of carpet and some nice furniture on the cheap. Do the place up lovely that would, if only they knew someone with all those skills.")


But nothing about them killing each other on the site:

The latest FB purchase.

Never in my life have I heard anyone paying €65 for 5 pots for "displaying in the home" before.. They aren't for use, just for looking at / showing off!

I’d say they are quite warm without having ever been near an oven

She's just spending her 100k in advance.

Some of them spend hundreds of thousands on a house and live out the back in a caravan
