The desperate pensioner will be turned out onto the streets after nearly 20 happy years in his home.
The reason: a city council inspection found his bathroom opens off from the communal hall. In fact, so does every tenant's bathroom in the quiet accommodation—but each are separate and private.
The Dublin pensioner, will be left homeless in a fortnight when he is kicked out of the one bedroom flat he has called home for 19 years.
Refusing to go into a soulless hostel, he faces the winter on the streets, and wants to know why council are forcing people out of their homes in the middle of a housing crisis. Source: Mirror.
At a certain age, a person doesn't have the determination to start again. Or the strength.
Perhaps a young person could cope—would cope. After my divorce in the mid 80s, I left my home in Australia with nothing but two suitcases and arrived in London, England. I found a job as a nanny within a week and have gone from strength to strength. But my youth has faded.
I feel desperately sorry for anyone without the comfort and security of a home.
Do you think you could cope if faced with eviction?
