Take a drive down the South/North Circular road, at 11am, any day of the working week, & you'll see a huge number of Africans, & Asians, who are hanging around not working, smoking pipes in cafés etc. muslim women with prams etc. (Ireland is 5th for non-working immigrants, after Greece -No.1, Spain, Portugal, Belgium). If 500 MILLION people are 'Entitled' to live & work in Ireland......., via their EU status, Ireland does not need further immigration. The Majority from Outside the EU, are Economic Migrants, here... 'for a better life'. Also, there are EU citizens coming from some Low wage EU countries, to 'higher' wage Ireland, But who are on the Social Housing list..!?!! This generally doesn't happen when Irish people go to France, or Germany, or Australia, to work, for example. Those towns that u say ....'opened their arms'.....to 'multi-culturalist' attitudes, .... it's Not the Truth, they are simply drawn-in to lower rent areas, therefore immigration increases in those areas / towns, & This causes White Flight, when it goes Over 50%, the Natives start moving out......... There is a huge rise in Chinese ?, Africans, Indians, Pakistanis , South Americans, in Dublin, Since When were Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese, at War ???? Thousands arrived as students, or tourists, & don't return home, & are getting PPS Numbers ? to work illegally. Even the Nigerians, Ireland has the Highest amount of Nigerians arriving, (it's in the Stats) to what THEY call................ 'Treasure Ireland'................! & I have seen on U Tube, .....Tourists warning other Tourists,...... 'DON'T Go to Dublin'! If u want to meet Irish People on Your Holiday, Stay Away from Dublin ! Full of foreigners !! Either way, they're shouldn't be 20% Foreign Born, & 30,000 illegals with PPS Numbers.....never mind the 5,000 in line for passports. The irony..., while a lot of Irish (17%) worry about whether They Should, or Shouldn't move home, (an agonizing decision), Their Country is Full up ! as everyone else from around the Globe, is trying to get into Ireland, in their Droves...! & Alan Shatter couldn't care a less if there's a housing problem. He has other things on his mind that i won't go into here. but destroying the white christian majority would be High on his list.
