We’ve mentioned before that our email inbox is a constant source of fascination, horror, and sometimes delight. Readers from all over send us all sorts of things: kudos, the occasional bit of trolling, but mostly information that we might not otherwise find.
One of the most popular topics of discussion is Oldcastle’s own Angela Power-Disney: it seems her neighbours just can’t say enough about her.
For instance, just yesterday we received this note:
Allegedly & without prejudice, she was in to see the community welfare officer last week, perhaps she needed money for her phone bill. I wonder if she declared the last donation on her Go Fund Me page?
She may be under investigation also about renting out the apartment in Lanzarote & also her Go Fund Me page, all undeclared income.
That last €40 GFM donation, by the way, was made 12 days ago, in case any welfare officers are paying attention here. We do like to be helpful when we can.
As for her stating she only moved to Lanzarote in July 2016, that is complete BS. She’s been there longer than that…she was offering to have friends visit definitely as far back as 2015. She has to be careful with her dates as the social welfare people wouldn’t like to know she was claiming but not living in Oldcastle.
She was planning on moving to Lanzarote months before Jamie’s operation [in September 2015]. She was going to go to America with him, but thought against it as she publicly disclosed about the whole green card thing….She doesn’t like to stay in one place for too long.
On the question of whether Angela owns her current house in Oldcastle, a reader had this to say:
Does she really own her council house? The story goes, allegedly & without prejudice of course, that she was renting it to a family, but the local authorities evicted them because there are rules about letting out council houses that have been bought at a special price.
But Angie’s neighbours care about more than just her money and housing difficulties. One wanted to set us straight about one of Angie’s favourite grievances, the inheritance she feels she is being wrongfully denied:
The family home is not Rainbow Farm as she claims, it has nothing to do with the Power family. Her sister is married to a man who owns Rainbow Farm. Angela’s father put up some money for the farm, and her sister may or may not own the farm with her husband but it has nothing to do with the Powers as Angela keeps claiming.The people of Oldcastle, Co. Meath want nothing to do with her, she is a disgrace to the town.We hate her saying she is Irish, then states that she was brought up to hate the English, pure nonsense.
Yes , I’m getting tired of this hiding behind God’s skirt when things are not going her way, she most definitely has the direct red phone line to him!
But when it comes to being a good neighbour, Angie really takes the crown:
Oldcastle is small and she has pissed people off….she does say things the way she thinks they are but not necessarily the way they actually are. TBH I don’t recognise the person she’s become on YouTube/Facebook, vicious, vindictive as she has become. Before I would have seen her as being straight and honest which the majority of people don’t like anyway, but not nasty like she is now….She’s losing local friends left right & centre on Facebook.
I saw with unmitigated delight that she had been handed a 30 day ban. I also report quite a lot of her garbage, some of course are taken down & some not.
Actually, we’ve heard from a number of people who say they regularly report Angie’s posts. Must be nice to be so loved!
Aye, who wants a snake who babbles incessantly about herself, makes no sense whatsoever, continues to hurt her local community with unfounded allegations on her FB page & shows the name & address of a young mother online, obviously not caring for the safety of this young mother & her children.
She is a woman who arrived here who thought she would have control of a community but instead people steered clear of her for various reasons, not least because she believes herself to be superior to others. Because of her allegedly do-good intentions, the other people involved are now looked at with suspicion also, so she has blackened their names. I notice she did not get many, if any birthday wishes locally this year.
So stand up and take a bow, Angie—you’re clearly one of Oldcastle’s most talked-about citizens! Allegedly and without prejudice, of course.
