Noel Grealish should be Taoiseach , he is spot on . I mean there are NO WARS in Albania or Georgia or Nigeria or Zimbabwe or South Africa , yet these are the top 5 countries of origin for asylum seekers entering Ireland this year . Most of them arrive at Dublin Airport and tear up their documents when they arrive . Something needs to be done , they must be turned back at the airports , the Accommodation is costing a fortune , 120 million this year and probably more next year as they continue to pile into our little country .

grealish is a credit to the people of galway . the only politician talking some sense right now , it cant go on . someone needs to say no , stop this , enough is enough .
#
