Kate Muldowney is a third year undergraduate student of Human Rights Law, English and Political Science at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUI Galway. This year, Kate spent three months interning with us here at CLM Northside. She assisted with our representation cases, with research and with our law reform and policy work and gained an insight into the workings of a busy community law centre. We would like to wish Kate all the very best in the rest of her degree and in her career, and thank her most sincerely for her work.

This case relates to a review of a decision made in 2004 to retrospectively charge the claimant for an overpayment of the One Parent Family Payment (OPFP), and the decision eleven years later to commence recovery of that overpayment by way of involuntary deductions from her Jobseekers Benefit claim. In October 2015 the claimant sought the assistance of Kerry MABS (MABS). In accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, 2014, MABS wrote to the Department of Social Protection (the Department) on her behalf, requesting all records relating to the decision that had the effect of raising the debt.
