Later he stigmatised one half of service-users and simultaneously pitted them against the other half by blaming the homeless for “gaming the system” to get social housing
“There’s a constant effort at balancing the interests. However there are fundamental contradictions in the interests of the tenants and the landlords.

RTB can’t really deal with that complex of a case or that level of force being applied by the landlord.”
One for later. Pauly Martin and Redmonk take over upstairs in Anseo for their irregular Tiny Cosmos party. They promise to “play it all, curve balls and crisp cuts.” Preview mix above and further details on Facebook.

It will come as unwelcome news to many of you but there are not just one or two – but three Lucinda Creightons. First, there is Lucinda Creighton. A woman from Claremorris, County Mayo. A … Read More
rabble’s own Redmonk has been lending his sketching skills to a musical education project for smallies for the past while now.

A few of us from this little parish of disgruntlement have been giving a dig out on the water charges front in Phibsborough. You can catch myself and Redmonk stepping up with the platters that matter up in Dalyer after the March on Saturday. Bring your smiley faces.

We all know that De Valera’s vision of a Gaelic utopia manifested itself as a bit of a psychologically terrifying clusterfuck. Here, Síofra Gallagher looks at the cultural wing of his endeavours, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (Society of the Musicians of Ireland), the organisation entrusted with promoting traditional dance and music since 1951, and asks the question: has Dev’s cultural wet dream become a crusty old wankstain?
