Tributes paid to young homeless mum-of-four found dead in tent on street

A tragic homeless mum-of-four found dead in a tent has been named locally.

Janet Jackson's body was discovered in Clondalkin, south Dublin, by Gardai (Irish police) in the early hours of Saturday morning.

A post-mortem is being carried out while a file is being prepared for the Coroner's Court, Dublin Live reports.

Tributes have flooded in for the mum who was in her 30s. Janet's sister confirmed the news on social media saying that she could not believe her sibling had been taken away from her.

She said: "I can't take this. Whoever hurt and took my sister away from me will pay for this.

"My big sister. I love you so much and I just can't believe this. Rest in peace, Janet."

Another close friend added: "RIP Janet. I was only talking to you and you were off out of here to get yourself better for you and your babies.

"It's a cruel world, look over your kids, your family and your friends."

A third said: 'So sad RIP Janet. I hope you get the best bed in heaven."

  • Police treating discovery of two dead children and a woman as 'suspicious'

Janet's body was found the day after a man in his 40s was discovered near the International Financial Services Centre in Dublin with Gardai still investigating "all circumstances" surrounding his death.

Inner City Helping Homeless boss Anthony Flynn said he was "completely saddened" by the second death on the streets last week.

He said: "A young girl died, alone in a tent on Saturday. And not a whisper about it.

"How many people have actually died in homeless services this year?

"How loud do we have to shout, how many more have to die?"

A garda spokeswoman confirmed the tragic death.

She said: "A body of a woman in her 30s was located at Lynch's Lane, Clondalkin in the early hours of 24 October, 2020.

"A post mortem has been carried out and a file is being prepared for the Coroner's Court."
