    I would like to know was this home the sole property in the possession of these evictees. I recall a hullaballoo some years ago when an elderly couple were evicted and it turned out they had 13 homes.

    We appreciate the move by the Government today and remind ourselves that it is a bail-out by taxpayers for the banks. Pearse Doherty

    The country is slowly slipping into a cesspit - health, housing and justice are about as bad now as I can recall since the 80s when we didn't have two cents to run together, unless, of course you were in the same old golden circle.

    That golden circle is a noose around the citizens neck.

    It was claimed by someone who was speaking to Newstalk this morning that some of the evicters were claiming to be "proud to be British".

    This is the second time the authorities have employed private security contractors. They also did this against the occupiers of the vacant properties in Dublin. I believe the Oireachtas should regulate the private security industry before we turn into a police state.

    To be honest situations like this create a clear runway for republican groups to make a populist return, ironically south of the border.

    This government have made vigilantism "acceptable" again because they've lost the trust of the majority - this is bigger than they are ready to deal with.

    Its not baseless to claim the 'security' were loyalists.

    Agree totally.

    A much simpler solution is the next time these ex squaddies come south to perform an eviction is that they are sent home in body bags .English people are welcome in this country as long as they remember the history of this country , their part in it and behave accordingly .Well done those brave men and ladies who taught some manners to the UVF/ Paras in strokestown

    It is a disgrace that the Gardai are behaving as the banksters heavies and standing by whilst violent evictions by thugs take place. The country needs someone of the calibre of Michael Davitt to bring about the end of such evictions.
    A man inherits the family farm that is handed down the generations. Then

    - He defaults in paying the Quarry who get a judgment against him
    - He somehow took nearly 200,000 of VAT without paying revenue and they go after him for that plus the penalties and interest
    - He borrows a large sum from the bank and doesn't pay them back.

    And your focus is the Gardai. Whose job it was not to aide an eviction but to keep the peace.

    Now I have an issue with the following:

    - What did he do with the VAT money
    - How and why did this man end up defaulting with his bank loans, it's not like he and his two siblings had a very expensive lifestyle so I suspect he overextended by buying more land or going building because this story makes no sense and no article has gone after that angle
    - Who hired the criminals from Northern Ireland to attack the security guys
    - Who thought it was a good idea to hire security men from NI which is just adding fuel to fire
    - Did the Gardai stand by while a retired gardai was assaulted

    Christ almighty would you ever cop on. You want people killed. I don't think dozens of armed balaclaved men going to a farm in the dead of night and attacking security men is the answer. There is nothing brave about that. And this has nothing to do with the history of the country and more to do with the proximity of Roscommon to the North. And idiots thinking hiring NI security men was a good idea in the first place.

    What we need now is cool heads.
