A good home gone to waste. Did anyone think of the children who could have benifitted from having a secure home over their heads. It really is a shame…pure fear and childishness…afraid to deal with the issue in an adult and democratic manner. Waste of a good home. It sickens me to see that anyone would deny a family a home by burning it down. The councillors are not to blame, he who struck the match is guilty of a gutless act of vandalism causing great hurt to travellers as a whole. He’ll be sorry if he is cought for he will never forget his crime.
whatever the rights or wrongs of whatever mceniff and dolan said i would certainly be taking legal advice if the quote from pringle is verbatim. i think its possible (if not probable) that certain people in the area are not well disposed to welfare providing luxury accomodation which is unlikely to improve the neighbourhood (real or imagined). but in this politically correct age which is devoid of all common sense i dont suppose you can say this?
While I wouldnd agree with anyone burning property, people are very rightly angry and dissapointed that such a house would be bought for a traveller family,when ordinary people have to fight to get a small house,also this is a quiet peacefull place and its not fair to put people in to live there who can be anti social and ruin a neighbourhood as has happened in most other places where travellers are placed its unfortunate but its the case in nearly all places where they live,why would the council do this knowing the huge clean up bills etc the incur everywhere they go,IOf a settled person threw a paper on the ground they would be fined,so whats different about travellers when they can do what they want,I totally agree with counciller mc eniff etc he spoke and said it as it is,why would anyone think it had anything to do with the arson attack,prob some kids who thought they we helping solve a matter which should never have happened in the first place,I wonder would Mr pringle want these people next door we all know the answer.
Hand ony your heart Thomas, a suitable property becomes vacant next door to you.(or anywhere in else in Killybegs.) Would you be contacting the Council to suggest they buy it for social housing?. I don’t think so.
theres always someone to blame Thomas. Give it a rest. go back to your shell.
while i have no time for the councillors mentioned this is nonsense from pringle, it seems these loony left politicians cannot wait to talk utter nonsense, mr pringle there is a reason people dont want travellers beside them, and it nothing to do with unjust hatred, it is to do with just concern.
I said it about the sinn fein comments and ill say it again, get them a house next door to pringle and see how he likes it. and, whats this about ensuring the family get support from community, are they not already getting a 230k house for nothing, when most people cant afford their mortgage, give us a break tom, how stupid do you politicians think the irish people are, and yeah they may have thirteen children, but if they cant provide them with at least a home then they shouldnt have had them.
Correct John Ferry I can tell you that there are travellers who have lived here in Letterkenny for years and who originate from Donegal they cause no-one any trouble but we have seen a large influx in recent years of ones from down the country and they are not the type you want to be living next door to.
Totally agree with The Townie. I myself am a homeowner, I struggle to pay the mortgage monthly in these times of recession but at least I could always say I had peace in my home. That was until travellers moved into two homes near mine and have now turned what used to be a quiet respectable place into a war zone. The Gardai are here at least three times a week, there are constant loud fights at night, cars revving at 5am, drunken men and women, toddlers running around with no one looking out for them. This is the truth, it’s a fact, I’m not an unreasonable or racist person…or at least I wasn’t until I was confronted with the reality of living next to these people.
