Student Grants and Clare and Sth Tipperary County Councils

There is exquisite irony in the government announcing the imminent
release of the wording of a referendum on childrens rights, when at
the same time, ministers of that same government praise county
councils who attach a codisil to the provision of student grants, with
the requirement that the houshold charge is paid in full on the
students address despite the certainty that few students will will be
the owners of said premises.

Will they ever learn?

Ruairi – mid 60s – No!
Phil – everyman- No!
