Gangland boss John Gilligan wants taxpayers to fund a new home for him after he lost three properties to the Criminal Assets Bureau.

The convicted drug trafficker presented himself at council offices in Blanchardstown last week claiming he is facing homelessness.

Gilligan, whose gang killed journalist Veronica Guerin 20 years ago, wants access to the Housing Assistance Payment which offers social housing support for people who have a long-term housing need.
