RESCUE ME FROM CAMBRIDGE COURT RINGSEND IRISHTOWN
August 19, 2010
Just the other day I placed an ad for a flat on Gumtree. In spite of the fact that there are huge numbers of empty properties all over Dublin it’s virtually impossible for a working class person to find one. You cannot discriminate against a foreigner or a fat person etc but discrimination on the grounds of class is rampant in Ireland , and quite blatant. Be that as it may , the fact is I need a small flat. I’m not particular as to location but it must MUST be quite. I won’t hold my breath while I’m waiting but I will leave the ad there permanently and hopefully in the fullness of time something will turn up.
I pass Flat to Let signs every other day but most if not all of these will only rent to students or business people. In fact it’s noticeable that those who buy council flats don’t want to rent to folk who might live in council accommodation !! A clear case of beggars on horseback. As I write this I can hear the noise of a TV coming through the walls in spite of the fact that the flat on my right has been empty for over a year and on my left the neighbours are not home…..It’s like a dripping tap….and from time to time that tap gets very loud. But that’s not the only reason I want to leave. This Cambridge Court flat that I live in is DARK , no daylight gets in at all….it’s like living in a cave and get’s very very depressing. That fact that there is no heating or no bedroom doesn’t help….
But it could take a long time to find a flat. I could take a very long time , if that is , one turns up at all. The photo , by the way , is not of Cambridge Court but rather of a house just up the road that caught my eye. Why not check out my new Cambridge Court Website.
