MARGARET Cash has revealed that she hopes to move to a new home with her young family on Friday.
The seven-year-old mother, who printed headlines this month when her six sons were forced to sleep in a gard station, spoke of her relief last week when they entered a three-bed apartment on Parnell Street in Dublin's northern city center.
But she was left devastated when she was told they had to leave there Friday.
This morning she posted an update on social media stating that Dublin City Council will have a new house for her on Friday, but she does not know how long it will take.
She wrote: "So the city council said that they are somewhere else on Friday night.
"How long do we not know, can not believe what they say."
Last night, Margaret told the Irish sun that she felt she could not tell the children about the new blow that they needed to be told to leave.
She said, "How can I tell them? They are settling down and putting the posters on their walls.
"I do not know where they go to school, because who knows where we will be? How do they make friends?
"The landlord was nice, really a very nice guy, but he told me that he agrees to give it to students from September 2nd.
The council says that they will have a flat on Friday, but how can you trust them after what has happened?
"They said it was still temporary and we would follow a trial month, and hopefully it would then be semi-permanent."
Margaret shocked the nation with photos from her sons – Johnny, 11, Tommy, ten, Miley, seven, Jim, four, Rocky, two and one year old Andy – who tried to crouch on chairs in Tallaght Garda Station.
They were later joined by nine-year-old sister Rebecca in their temporary home.
The story has led to a major national debate on homeless services throughout Ireland.
