    Thumbs down McCarthy-Dundon mob have taken over lucrative prostitution-protection racket

    If this isnt the best advert for legalisation - I dont know what is.

    I like the phrase 'offering protection'

    as usual , u have to wait for a girl to be killed. U want a pot hole filled, but the council say "no money"??

    Mother with 2 kids hits pot hole, loses control and crashes into a ditch, killing everyone.

    Ah yes, we'll re-tarmac the whole road.

    There's a difference between "The feuding Limerick gangsters are offering their services to prostitutes who want protection from local pimps." (which is just security) and the usual meaning of the words "protection money". A protection racket is usually about "If you pay us, we won't hit/rob you".

    The girl that did the interview isn't the best spokesperson as she said that the couple she worked for were "ruthless people" and then she called the guy a "nice guy".

    I think it's more like about half, that's the usual thing isn't it? And that could be mostly for accommodation, security etc.

    I'm all in favour of legalising it, but we don't have to be hysterical about criminal gangs, with news sources such as the Sunday World, and scare people away saying a girl is "lucky" to keep 1/5th of it??? Come on, that has to be a lie for all but 100% illegally trafficked girls.

    This is just what one girl said to Sunday world? I'd wait for more info before I believed any of it.
