Grapevine gossip is there is more cases like this upcoming
It's odd that it is not politically sensitive, yet if you mention a traveller having a €40k vehicle whilst on social welfare, the DSP & Revenue back off.

A psychological assessment found the 41-year-old woman had a difficult upbringing in Nigeria and ranked in the bottom one percentile intellectually.


Far from being given a (fully suspended) prison sentence, this woman should be awarded a national honour in recognition of her achievements in overcoming huge disadvantages and, despite the lowest measurable level of intelligence, obtaining mortgage finance, claiming numerous welfare benefits and raising four children, all without causing the slightest concern to our financial institutions, our welfare system or our schools.

That's some good detective work. Why couldn't the DPP do that bit of Googling too?

The DPP doesn't investigate.

The anti-fraud unit in the DSP could run amok if they investigated claimants' social media postings.

Do you think there's a real will to clamp down on fraud?

There's been a trend on social media for a couple of years now for people in Ireland to change their names on social media in order to deliberately frustrate searches by DSP. "John Murphy" changing his name to "jJohn Murphy" is the style I've observed - recognisable by their friends but a search for the former doesn't yield the latter or least puts jJohn down the list of hits.

It would be far more sensible to just change privacy settings so that your posts are private to friends, but I guess that doesn't help if you get tagged in a photo on some other moron's feed.

Call to restore unemployment benefits to pre-crash levels

That's what we need, more barriers for returning to employment

Meet the hunter who kills more than 200 deer a year – but has now had his guns confiscated as part of a legal row.
Kevin Conway has been one of Ireland’s most prolific deer hunters in recent years, selling the bodies of the wild animals for meat....
....The 53-year-old, from Leitra, near Glenamaddy, Co. Galway, shares his home with his ex-partner’s five children. He is on disability allowance for the past five years as he claims he suffers lung damage from clearing noxious substances in a factory he used to work in.
Kevin told the Sunday World that he used to sell 150 of the deer to an abattoir in Claremorris, making €75 to €100 per carcass, 50 privately to friends and kept three for himself.
"I use them to supplement my income," he said....
"So if you go out early in the morning they are waking up, their bellies are full and they ramble back into the woods and that’s the time you get the deer."...
He also reveals that often he would get five deer in one morning
