This is Our Ireland

The extraordinarily bold move to take over the NAMA-owned Apollo Building in Dublin and use it as a shelter for 40 homeless people has echoed all over the land.Donations of money, goods, time, professional advice and voluntary help have poured in. And the initiative is being replicated elsewhere – in the Sligo area for one

So here is the 1916 centenary song we have been waiting for

 

and the speech  we have long needed to hear

 

 

Remember: “We declare the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland and to the unfettered control of Irish destinies, to be sovereign and indefeasible”.

PS Some other background info on homelessness and evictions  in Ireland  in 2013.

The problem  has just got bigger and worse since then.
