My heart goes out to Borrisokane and tipp people , the place will be changed forever . The department of justice are bullies . fine gael are destroying our communities , fianna fail the same , so are pbp sinn fein etc . these people are intent on destroying our beautiful country
#
sadly for leitrim and tipp , they voted for the wrong people , they dont have the representation needed to fight this . This is only the tipp of the iceberg of whats in store for rural ireland . Soon , Every town and village will soon have a DP centre .
#
the whole asylum system needs to overhauled . you cant have a situation where people are coming from safe countries to claim asylum . The system was never meant for that . We need to turn people back at the airports . the Uk lists Nigeria as a safe country of origin , south africa is listed by ireland as a safe country of origin . Albania and Georgia both safe countries of origin . zimbabwe is also a safe country . Irish tourists even travel there each year on holidays . Something has to change . The DOJE cannot continue the way they are , they must reform the system urgently
#
we are a laughing stock . a soft touch . Ireland must be the only country on the planet that gives free houses to the whole world . There are no wars in Albania or Georgia or Nigeria or South Africa . why are we paying for houses for these people .

Direct Provision centres are a bit like conveyor belts , they keep churning out more and more migrants into the local community . Eventually the people dont recognise their areas anymore . There is definitely a Racial Agenda behind them . They are for keeps , for life , these areas are going to be changed FOREVER with people who aren't even genuine unless people stand up and resist it

There is something very strange and deliberate going on in Europe at the minute. The ones behind this at the very top have very specific reasons for orchestrating this invasion - and I mean the international ones at the top. As you come further down the pyramid they aren't aware of whatever the real reason is, but they are content to do it for power, position, convenience and the possibility of reward ( Varadkhar getting cushy EU job for instance), and then as you come further down it is pure greed (the hotel owners) etc and sometimes crass stupidity ( lefty indoctrinated 'yoof' ).
We need to make a lot of noise online and speak up among our acquaintances so that it becomes the norm to speak out and with common sense on these matters.  
Colonel Boycott, how are ye'!
