Last Monday I received a letter from Dublin City Council offering me a transfer to a new flat. It is in a nice location just a few minutes from the Peppercanister Church and the National Gallery of Ireland. Unfortunatly the flat itself is just the same as the one I am living in at the moment.
It is a one room flat with absolutely no aesthetic appeal and is typical of the sort of housing that is offered to those on the public housing list. The only reason I was offered this was that the local Gardai put some pressure of the council to get me out of the hell hole I’m living in. Of course this new flat might turn out to be even worse than Cambridge Court which is why I did not take it. It really is a pity as the neighbourhood is really nice.
