Message from a mother who has had enough

• I honestly do not know where to start. I have never written to a paper before in my life. I am a mother of four children, three of whom have taken the emigration trail to Australia, and the fourth is waiting to finish college, having received no help whatsoever from the State. When he's finished, I have no doubt that he will follow in their footsteps.

I'm so angry and frustrated that at times I could pull my own hair out.

I listen and watch the news at every opportunity and feel utterly betrayed by the shambolic decisions made by the previous government, which are being rubber-stamped by this administration.
