Housing staff face verbal abuse
Concerns were also raised about the level of verbal abuse some front line staff have to deal with on a daily basis.
Cllr George Lawlor said the staff in the housing department were 'under serious, serious pressure'. Cllr Fergie Kehoe said he was concerned about 'the very sinister abuse the housing section staff were getting with people verbally abusing them', particularly since the announcement of €25million in social housing funds. Cllr Davy Hynes said 'people who abuse the staff are misdirected. They are only trying to do their job with the resources they have.'
