Judge wants to help people who face losing their homes

A judge today advised families who fear that they will lose their homes in current economic crisis to come before him and he would try to help.

However, Judge John O’Hagan said if people bury their heads in the sand and fail to attend court when financial institutions bring actions against them, there is little he can do to help.

The judge told Donegal Circuit Court that he was particularly concerned to help families with young children.
