    It’s got feck all to do with Christmas. Shes clearly using the publicity being evicted at Christmas is bringing hoping that the bank/sheriff have a change of heart or want to avoid the negative publicity. If she hasn’t paid rent since 2013 she’s lucky to have stayed in the property for so long. I hope she gets fined for over holding

    Highlight ppl who are pushed out of homes… Not those who feel they should get a free one…she made no attempts to pay mortgage, should she be rewarded??

    No ciaran, she opted not to engage or pay any money.. If she tried paying 10 euro a week I bet the bank would have had trouble putting her out, but she decided she didn’t need to pay her mortgage..

    Well she hadn’t paid anything since 2013. Think its clear to say she didn’t engage. I have a problem with the headline of this article though. The bank are not evicting her. The house was repossessed because she wasn’t paying anything some time ago. She took it upon herself to re-enter a home she no longer had a right to be in and is being removed from it again. There is a line of thinking among some people who think that just because someone was able to get a mortgage in the past, that they are entitled to the house for free. Get real people. Houses cost money and if you are not willing to pay for it, the real owners of the house (the banks) will find someone who will. As for this woman, if she couldn’t afford the mortgage, she should have handed back the keys long ago and rented somewhere or moved somewhere she can afford. If she has failed to get alternative accommodation at this stage nearly nine months after a repossession order has been given, she is a very silly person indeed.

    Dairmuid, if it was an ordinary recession and I was 35 years old I guess I would have agreed with you. The mortgage crisis is one where people have been oversold loans for properties that have become worthless to sell on. When family homes are at stake, when deposits and life savings are wrapped up, and there’s job losses (again due to a catastrophic climate unheard of since the 30′s) so the depression an numbness sets in. Like a rabbit in the headlights it’s hard to know which way your going, especially with kids, and 24 months is not an unheard of timescale in the repossession process. Most people at the beginning of this mess were will to pay and were working all house god sends – but when the Government also makes it hard with taxes and USC to keep your head up, when costs are increasing all around you, its easy to sink, loose your will to live even.

    Where I think the Banks are failing (and the judiciary ) is in recognising thing do change, as they clearly have. This verdict is being churlish and short sighted. The banks didn’t behave straight with us, nor came clean with politicians questions, and they had a second chance no problem – so why shouldn’t she? Indeed where is the justice.

    We are rewarding failed politicians every day in fact we pay out over 65 million a year to the ones that ruined this country …. this woman or any of us did not get bailed its was the banks and the gamblers …. and then this gov’t passed an illegal bill to give the vultures we bailed more power to put families out of their homes …… shame on the people that think its ok to throw this woman and her children out of their home … we have over 200 thousand children homeless already in this country .. what part of that do people not get .. over 750k living in poverty yet our politicians can turn up in the dail to pass a Fat 6% increase on their already over inflated salary …. its time to cut that gravy train cord …
