Whilst in some regards the administrative aspects of the decision are perverse , these people plainly intended belting out more children willy-nilly , whilst they had no employment.

That is not responsible behavior , and people who engage in such behavior, are not kind to their prospective children, and said same disadvantaged children are likely to be of similar burden to society as the feckless parents

Couple taken off housing list after birth of eighth child
The Wards, of Alverno Drive, Willow Park, Athlone, Co Westmeath, had been on the council’s social housing list since 2011 and say their only income is derived from social welfare payments including job seeker’s allowance, rent supplement and child benefit.
...A jobless couple were removed from a local authority housing list because their annual social protection income had jumped to just over €29,000 after the birth of an eighth child, the High Court was told on Tuesday.

Racist! The Wards are clearly one of our ethnic minority that have to be celebrated and not harangued by the likes of you!! :)

On a more serious note it seems that its only life dolers that can afford to be having childtrn these days.

But not for the rest of us.

Not good for the Ward's children either.

Most couples plan their family size based on family income and ability to give their children a decent education and life.

Not so much the Wards.

The rate at which a population needs to reproduce to maintain a constant level will obviously vary between countries, but last time I looked it was about 2.3 children per couple, or seven children per three couples, in Ireland. If we think of it that way this pair is taking up the slack for many other couples who have only had two children or less. If they didn't then P.ie would have even more threads about how the colour of the Irish is changing with time, followed by the usual demands for tighter immigration controls etc.

The HSE have just purchased 2 nice houses on Lawrence road Clontarf. Clearly one of them should be given to this family.

Why stop there? Children of paupers should be sent to the laundries where they will be raised with the love and compassion that only such institutes can provide.

Disgrace.

If it is deemed to be unconstitutional, then we need a referendum to cap SW at 60% AIW and social house size to national average in size and value

The Church's teachings on condoms dont help. Is this a religious family?

Making an ass of yourself again I see. The wholesale dishing out of taxpayers money to all in sundry is one of the reasons this Ward family continue to birth children with little regard of their responsibilities toward those children. This madness has to stop.

There is no way to penalise (disincentivise) the parents without punishing the children. You can't prevent people having children. This is one "society" just has to take on the chin and grin and bear it. The children are disadvantaged enough with the parents they have, and situation they have been brought into, that they need all the help they can from society to get through it.

And sterilise the parents. We can't have the Untermensch breeding like this, can we?

We have an demographics crisis and people are moaning about this. I wonder how kids have sprung have the fruit of the OP's loins? They are obviously quite happy otherwise they wouldn't have brought so many kids into the world to share it with them.
