    Gabriel Byrne has blasted the “gap between rich and poor“ in Ireland after two homeless men died on our streets last week.

    The Hollywood actor has noticed the growing numbers of people lying on the pavements here and is appalled by the recent tragedies.

    The 67-year-old said: “I can’t help thinking of those people freezing to death in Dublin and elsewhere in the country and a gigantic tax shelter like the Irish financial centre where companies who are a trillion dollars in profit can actually hang out there and pay almost negligible tax.

    “I find that hard to understand.”

    750,000 people are living in poverty in Ireland - on under €218 a week


    • 18% of adults living in poverty are employed – which it called ‘the working poor’
    • The top 10% of households receives 24% of Ireland’s total disposable income while the bottom 10% of households only receives 3%
    • Almost one in five children live in households with incomes below the poverty line.
    • Most weekly social assistance rates paid to single people are €30 below the poverty line.
    According to the National Anti-Poverty Strategy: “People are living in poverty if their income and resources (material, cultural and social) are so inadequate as to preclude them from having a standard of living that is regarded as acceptable by Irish society generally.”

    This video explains why Varadkar's economic theory is more dog-shit than dogma.
