Fact check - The EU is NOT 'Europe' , Europe is a Continent

The EU or European Union is a political union of countries located on the Continent of Europe . It is NOT Europe . Europe is a 'Continent' . A giant land mass which scientists say formed some 200 million years ago when the supercontinent of Pangaea split into pieces . On the other hand , the EU was formed just 27 years ago , the 1st November 1993 to be precise when the Treaty on European Union also called Maastricht treaty came into force . Quote from treaty - "we the high contracting parties hereby establish among ourselves a european union" - Title 1 , Article A .

Why can't we do for homeless people what we do for asylum seekers

Why can't we do for homeless people what we do for asylum seekers

As temperatures plummet , and homeless freeze to death on streets of our capital , the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) , UN and various migrant rights groups under the leadership of former EU Commission Secretary Catherine Day , have produced new guidelines for the Welfare of Asylum Seekers arriving in Ireland . Under the guidelines , it is a Breach of Human rights to put an Asylum Seeker in a Hotel , the Asylum Seeker must be given their own Apartment or a House . Seven such Housing Schemes for Asylum seekers have already been put in place this year , Galway City , Rosslare , Tullamore , Ennis

Donegal and Ireland is already enriched long before Direct Provision

Donegal and Ireland is already enriched long before Direct Provision

Donegal TD Thomas Pringle spoke recently about the cultural benefits Asylum Seekers will bring to Letterkenny on foot of a new direct provision centre in the town. While he didn't give any examples or explain what benefits exactly , as someone who has lived with a Direct Provision centre in my own town since 2006 , I can honestly say I haven't felt any cultural or societal benefits from the arrival of asylum seekers some 14 years ago . Our Country is a beautiful country enriched with its own unique culture , we have our own ancient language dating back 2,500+ years , our own ancient sports ,
