Limerick housing crisis takes a deathly turn

However, the lack of housing has already pushed vulnerable families to take drastic measures.“My office is inundated with people who simply have nowhere to go. We are dealing with people who sleep in their cars, families who live with relatives in very overcrowded conditions,” Deputy Quinlivan explained.“We have many cases of people contacting our office when they hear of a death or the passing of a neighbour to see if they can be put forward for the accommodation. This is very depressing but it highlights the stress and drastic things people will do to get accommodation.“Council policy is not to contact the relative of the deceased person for at least six weeks. But people are now so desperate for housing that they think if they are first in they might get the house.”But Deputy Quinlivan pointed out that this is not how it works.“The vast bulk of houses are allocated on the basis of need, not who is first in for it. Contacting our office to say ‘so and so’ has died and can I be put forward for this house can be very stressful for all of us dealing with housing issues, many of which can often be very complex cases.”by Alan [email protected] Advertisement Printcenter_img Previous articleCourt holds funds of Jason Corbett life policy as Molly appeals judges rulingNext articleSynod maps ‘Camino of hope’ for Church in #Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie TAGSdeath noticesfeaturedhomelesshomelessnesshousing crisislimerickMaurice Quinlivan TDSinn Fein Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Linkedin NewsLocal NewsLimerick housing crisis takes a deathly turnBy Alan Jacques – April 14, 2016 2077 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook First Irish death from Coronavirus last_img read more

Policing plan in place for West Limerick ‘Mecca’


first_imgWhatsApp Linkedin GARDAÍ have assured councillors in West Limerick that significant police resources are in place to address any issues that arise in Rathkeale over the Christmas period.Addressing local representatives of Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District at a special meeting this Wednesday, Detective Inspector Alan Cullen of Newcastle West Garda Division told council members that the policing plan for the region would be evaluated on a daily basis.Fine Gael councillor Stephen Keary claimed to have learned that illegal substances fueled much of the unruly behaviour in Rathkeale and other towns and villages during Christmas. He called for greater scrutiny on this issue.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Just last night there was a group of young adults marauding up and down the main street like badly trained dogs without any regard for man or beast. We see young people upsetting old people, pounding on their windows and doors and throwing things at cars. This is not acceptable in a civilised society,” he said.Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien suggested that sniffer dogs could be used as a “random deterrent” to deal with drug users on the streets over Christmas. He also called for greater Garda resources to patrol the Shannon Estuary and prevent smugglers using the river as a means to transport drugs and ultimately “destroy young lives”.Fine Gael councillor Adam Teskey said that Gardaí should work with the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) and Revenue Commissioners in Rathkeale over Christmas to look at where the wealth being brought into the State comes from.Fianna Fail councillor Kevin Sheahan pointed out that the hundreds of visitors to Rathkeale from the UK every Christmas help boost the local economy and said that this was to be welcomed.“It’s like those fellas that go to Mecca. This is their Mecca.”Cllr Adam Teskey closed the meeting by asking the press to report “favourably” on proceedings.by Alan [email protected] TAGSAdare-Rathkeale municipal districtChristmasCllr Adam TeskeyCllr Emmett O’BrienCllr Kevin SheahanCllr Stephen KearyFianna FáilFine GaellimerickRathkealeWest Limerick Missing you this Christmas Flying home to Limerick for Christmas Twitter Previous articleJan zones in on soaring rentsNext articleGardai seize €250,000 worth of drugs in Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Print Delicious Wiltshire Farm Foods brightening your days in Autumn center_img Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Email NewsLocal NewsPolicing plan in place for West Limerick ‘Mecca’By Alan Jacques – November 26, 2016 1187 Limerick Post Show | Christmas Special Advertisement Merry Christmas from the Limerick Post Show Send a bar of Cadbury chocolate for free! last_img read more

If we had these two areas addressed we would see a significant drop in the numbers coming into homelessness,” he explained.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Meanwhile, Limerick TD Maurice Quinlivan claimed that two recent reports highlighted how “Limerick City in particular is suffering under Fine Gael’s failed housing policies”.Statistics from The Residential Tenancies Board indicates that the average rent rate in Limerick city rose by 19.1 per cent between the third quarter of 2016 and 2017, far above the national average. In addition to these figures, homelessness figures released by the government also show that in November 309 people in Limerick were homeless; and 87 families with 173 children were in emergency accommodation in the Mid-West.Limerick Sinn Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan“Nationally there are now 8,857 people including 3,333 children in emergency accommodation across the State, a new shameful record. An utter disgrace,” Deputy Quinlivan commented.“There is a direct correlation between the escalating rents and those being forced into homelessness. Rents are now seven per cent above the peak they reached in the Celtic Tiger, a worrying record to break.“I have to wonder at what stage the government will realise the plans and initiatives they so often cite, are totally failing, and in fact the problems are continuing to substantially worsen under their guidance. Or does Fine Gael realise their policies are indeed failing, but they are unwilling to introduce the reforms and changes necessary for fear of a rebuke from landlords and special interests?” he concluded.More housing news here Students warned of rental scams in Limerick center_img Mortgage payment break for local authority home loan borrowers will be extended by a further three months Average Limerick city house prices rise 2.5% in past year Print Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls Covid crisis impacts building of new homes in Limerick Facebook WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

San Jose, California, was the least affordable metro with a ratio of 5.3. Both metros have occupied the top and bottom rank since 2014.  The report states that across the 50 metros studied, the average FTB ratio was 3.3, which means first-time buyers spent 3.3 times the household income to purchase a home.  Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Mike Albanese Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: Homeownership Rentinglast_img read more

Plea In Supreme Court Seeks To Resume Social And Food Security Schemes For Migrants, Transport Facility To return Home


first_imgTop StoriesPlea In Supreme Court Seeks To Resume Social And Food Security Schemes For Migrants, Transport Facility To return Home Mehal Jain29 April 2021 6:57 AMShare This – xThe Supreme Court has been moved in an application for a direction to the UOI to resume its schemes of providing dry rations to all 8 crore migrant labourers/stranded or needy persons who are not covered under the National Food Security Act or State PDS cards.It is prayed that the Aatma Nirbhar Bharat package and the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Ann Yojana schemes of last year are reinstated and the persons identified under them last year be extended the benefits for such time that the Disaster Management Act is in force, by issuance of COVID ration cards.Advertisement Activists Anjali Bhardwaj, Harsh Mander and Jagdep Chokkar, who had filed a PIL before the court last year drawing its attention to the plight of the migrant workers amid the lockdown, have filed this application in the apex court’s suo motu proceedings of last year on the issue of migrant labourers.The plea points out that the top court had in its order of last year noted that “newspaper report and media reports have been continuously showing the unfortunate and miserable conditions of migrant labourers walking on-foot and cycles from long distances”. The order observed that in the lockdown situation in the entire country, this section needs succor and help by the Central and State governments in a coordinated manner.The applicants submit that the problems and miseries faced by migrant workers during the lockdown in 2020 have persisted over the past year due to the continued economic distress and now have got aggravated on account of fresh restrictions curfews and lockdowns being imposed in many States to control the spread of COVID. Migrant workers are again bearing the brunt of these policies and urgent intervention is required to address the following issues:Advertisement (i) Loss of livelihood and means of income on account of the restrictions and lockdowns resulting in people being unable to pay for basic needs like food, rent, etc.(ii) Lack of proper arrangement for safe and free travel back to their hometowns and villages when lockdowns are announced.The applicants seek to bring to the notice of the Court the continuing hardship being faced by the migrant worker community in light of the new restrictions and curfews/lockdowns imposed by state governments to curb the spread of the second wave of COVID-l9 in India.Advertisement Advertisement “The new restrictions and curfews/lockdowns imposed by governments to curb the spread of the second wave of COVID-l9 has caused immense distress in the lives of the economically vulnerable sections of society, especially migrant workers”, it is urged.It is pointed out that across several states, migrant workers, having lost their means of livelihood on account of the restrictions imposed, are unable to sustain themselves and there is large scale distress migration back to their hometowns. No proper relief measures to mitigate the economic hardships being faced by migrant workers have been announced when the lockdowns were put in place leading to a preca-rious situation. The loss of livelihood and means of income is causing food insecurity among migrant workers and their families.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The plea also seeks a direction to the Central and the State governments to provide free cooked food through networks of community kitchens, hunger relief and feeding centres especially at places where distressed migrant workers are congregating such as industrial areas, homeless shelters, bus stations, train stations and other areas to ensure no one remains hungry.Following are the other prayers in the application:(i) Direct the UOI and state governments to furnish details of the social and food security schemes put in place and the plans formulated under the Disaster Management Act for providing relief to migrant works on account of the adversities suffered due to the lockdown restrictions and curfews being imposed in different states.(ii) Direct the Central and State governments to provide transport by buses and rails at nominal fare while ensuring adherence to COVID protocols to migrant workers across the country who are desirous of returning to their hometowns and villages, including by providing special trains as required; (iii) Direct the Central and the State governments to jointly and severally ensure cash transfers equivalent to the notified minimum wage of different states to all migrant workers for the period that economic activity is adversely impacted by lockdowns/restrictions to compensate for the loss of livelihood and income.(iv) Direct the UOI and state governments to place in the public domain details of the social and food security schemes put in place for providing relief to migrant works and ensure wide publicity to the same in such form, manner and language that it is accessible to affected people and also put in place effective and time-bound grievance redressal mechanisms including by way of help-lines to redress problems being faced by migrant workers regarding food shortage, transport issues, problems in accessing government schemes etc.TagsMigrant Labours Supreme Court National Food Security Act Anjali Bhardwaj Harsh Mander Jagdep Chokkar Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

17-year-old allegedly killed 2 teens in his grandparents’ garage, set their bodies on fire in their car: Sheriff


first_img(Porter County Sheriff’s Office) Connor Kerner is a suspect in the murder of two teens in Indiana. (PORTER COUNTY, Ind.) — A 17-year-old allegedly killed two Indiana teenagers in his grandparents’ garage and then set their bodies on fire inside their car, officials said.Connor Kerner was arrested on Saturday for the murders of 19-year-old Molley Lanham and 18-year-old Thomas Grill, the Porter County Sheriff’s Office said on Monday in a statement.Kerner, of Valparaiso, Indiana, was charged with two counts of murder, the sheriff’s office said. Kerner is being tried as an adult, Porter County Prosecutor Gary German told ABC News on Tuesday.Grill, of Cedar Lake, Indiana, and Lanham, of St. John, Indiana, were last seen on Feb. 25, according to the sheriff’s office.On Saturday morning sheriff’s detectives started investigating information from “an anonymous source,” who said the missing teenagers were killed by Kerner, the sheriff’s office said.The anonymous source allegedly said he or she was at Kerner’s home on Feb. 25 when Kerner said, “I killed someone and I killed an innocent girl,” according to court documents.The source told authorities that Kerner said the murders happened in his grandparents’ garage while they were out of town, according to court documents.The source said Kerner said Grill came over with his girlfriend, Lanham, for a drug deal, and when Grill tried to rob him, he shot him, according to court documents.“Grill fell to the ground and was begging for his life,” the source said, according to documents. “Kerner advised that he panicked due to being out of bullets in the gun. Kerner then beat him with a pipe wrench until he died.”Lanham was out at the car at the time, and the source said Kerner had Lanham come into the garage and showed her Grill’s body, according to court documents.Kerner “informed her that he was going to let her go, but if she told, he would kill her,” the source said, according to court documents. “Kerner advised that when she turned to leave the garage, Kerner shot her in the head, killing her.”The source said Kerner admitted to putting the bodies in the trunk of the car, driving about two miles away where he lit the car and bodies on fire, according to documents.The two victims found inside the car have not been identified, but “all evidence obtained at this point” lead investigators to believe the bodies are Grill and Lanham, according to the sheriff’s office.“DNA is being sent to the lab for processing and the Porter County Coroner’s Office will be working on a forensic autopsy with medical records to confirm the identities,” the sheriff’s officials said.When Kerner was arrested, he refused to answer questions, the sheriff’s office said. Kerner is being held without bond at the Porter County Jail and is due to appear at a status hearing in May, according to the prosecutor’s office.Kerner’s attorney did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
