Family forced to squat in house....

So, another day another article in the independent about a "desperate homeless family" reduced to illegally occupying a house, this time in county Meath.

"Pregnant Melissa Wilde (21), her partner Patrick Bernard Hand (26), and their children 20-month-old Cyra and three-month-old Levi are squatting in the vacant council property in the Windtown estate in Navan, Co Meath.

The couple have been there for several days, saying they were unable to find anywhere to live. But they have been ordered to attend the circuit court within 21 days if they don't surrender the property. Meath County Council is seeking to repossess the house."

21 years old, two children and another on the way, wants to live close to mammy. Sure god love her.


I'm sure daddy must be out working very very hard in order for them to save for their own mortgage....

Another sob story to get bumped up the housing list, why do these "journalists" not ask them about employment, education, savings, both look young, fit and able to work?!

I'm sure they will be housed on the QT in a nice big 4 bed house beside their mammies.

Meanwhile we're living in extremely run down house we bought 30km from where we wanted. Doing a job a week from our wages... difficult but will be worth it .

Spent five years saving and persuading bank to give us a mortgage.

No kids, no pets, no holidays etc etc

Sometimes I'm sorry we bought in Ireland when I read this ****

Cyra and levi.

They should be struck of the list for that travesty alone.

Is this the same councils who are advising tenants to overstay in privately rented houses and forcing owners to jump through hoops to regain possession of their own properties?

Imagine prioritising a house a long way from where you want to live over having children.

Sure it's grand old mammy Erin will pay for the IVF.

I admire people like this. They see our political and establishment classes gaming the system and they do likewise. Monkey see, monkey do.

On the flip side would you have it any other way?

I wouldn't live like these pair. That's no defence of them whatsoever I might add. But I wouldn't which is why I worked for my own property in an area we chose in a house we have put our own stamp on and continue to do so.
