Only two? What does she think the Irish welfare services are for?
This wonderful lady was caught stealing a €500 dress from a shop in Galway. When confronted she

She then knocked the police woman to the ground, but her escape was foiled when an off-duty cop happened by and restrained her. Meanwhile her companion ran off with the dress, which was never recovered.
According to the prosecutor, she had evaded the charge for almost four years by constantly moving address. We can take it that the various addresses were provided for her courtesy of the taxpayer, as described in this post.
However, despite the judge's tough words I'm not convinced. He gave the woman three weeks to arrange care for her children and then 'she could bring a bag with her' when she comes up for sentencing. I'm not convinced. With Irish judges, sentence severity has an inverse correlation with tough words. I'd say she'll be given a warning and let loose to continue her exploits.
