Manual Labourer Family To Be Kicked Out Of Their Famine Era Shack

Members of The Irish Constabulary moved in today in a wretchedly poor area of Dublin to remove a hard working labourer family from their ramshackle E30m home.

The O’Donnell family were supported in protest by members of the Land League, a group formed to assist the poor keep their meager homes.

The home, which does not even have a helicopter pad or a swimming pool, is based in Killiney in Dublin and has been their family home since 2001. The family survived on vegetables from a small holding during the boom times in Ireland and father Brian made some shillings shooing horses and removing dung from small homesteads.

A member of the Land League told Galway Daily News of the family’s plight, ‘it is not fair on these poor people. I mean look at them, last season’s Armani! Christ, I wouldn’t even dress my dog in them. I hope the banks leave them alone so we the Irish taxpayer can pay off the debts they owe in full due to exotic spending in the good times.
