they would be better off going after the people living abroad using an Irish address & not giving one cent of their money here..

OUR Children don't count Helen they are the one's that will suffer b4 this petition I've sent umpteen letters about the amount of Bogus people claiming child benefit & they didn't do a thing to rectify it but I assure you us REAL parent's in our own country will be the 1st people they hit with this fiasco..Time to look abroad first thats their answer

5% of Irish citizens have 135 billion euro in Irish banks and pay no tax what ever to the Irish state, because they have moved there business abroad and only live in Ireland part of the year to avoid paying taxes. These are the people that sit down with our government and advise them on how to run our country.Our politicians are sycophants to these 5% rich and powerful tax dodgers .

Dead right Jeremiah & the brains behind all this scam is allowing this elusive tax band like loads of authors & musicians here live SCOT FREE & yet all their money is located abroad..Time I either start writing crap like some of them or Sing like crap like the others I will be very very rich indeed..This country is full of artists..YUP SCAM ARTISTS

well with respect I'm well aware we are all born somewhere BUT ur missing the point it's about thousands of Bogus people using Irish addresses & DO NOT live here yet are claiming C.A. nothing to do with other countries or employment abroad thats not my point..I know people using their parents addresses to claim maybe US Irish are sick of being grateful to the un-grateful!!

IMHO the problem isn't people abroad claiming it. Its billionaire bondholders that wrecked the economy and their servants in the Dail. Their are of course a few billionaires who also don't actually live abroad but claim to and avoid tax. If we buy into that red herring put out by the government and the media (most of which is owned by those billionaires) then we only allow them to divide and rule when ordinary working people and the poor need to stand in solidarity no matter where they were born.

Enda Kenny just came out there and said, when asked about cutting the child benefit 'we don't have money to throw around' and said we shouldn't forget that this country is in financial dire straits.....what the hell does that have to do with the children of this country? and seriously 'throw around' think more along the lines of helping to feed/clothe/school our kids since your ensuring that while wages are stagnant everything else is going up! cloud cuckoo land he lives in I'm sure of it! ;(

times are changing and i really do hope that the people realise their power and that they are the ones that elect these false prophets to their positions of power in the 1st place... it seems they are intent on making the rich richer and the poor poorer... we are the 99% and we do matter.... and to start penalising our children for the mistakes and the bad debt incurred by the crooked bankers.... just wont wash with us...
