Unfortunately I see Ireland becoming more like UK Brexiters/US Republicans and country will be there in about a decade. Very pro-Eu country now but that will change. Theres a new nationalism emerging that is not unlike English nationalism. That mentality can be seen in both left and right. Its a worrying development.

There was a guy interviewed yesterday who had recently bought one of the apartments adjacent to the ESB site. His wife is now pregnant and they  are looking to sell the apartment and buy a house.

He claimed that either he wont be able to sell or will be forced to sell at a loss
 
Disgraceful carry on by the govt

"Recently bought"
"Wife now pregnant"
"Wants to sell"

Why did he buy an apartment "recently" if he was going to sell the minute wife became pregnant. A real person would have bought a house and saved themselves 2 loads of legal fees, stamp duties etc plus auctioneer fees.
Sounds like sh1te.

Doesn't change the fact that he'll be selling at a loss due to a mass influx of migrants 'seeking a better life'. And you're brushing over that. Why?

Should they not seek a better life in the area to protect this guys house price?

The migrants are bringing the price of the apartments down? What price was the apartment?

Recently could be 2 or 3 years ago so its completely plausible

Well, why should we be obliged to provide a better life for the rest of the world, whilst making a worse life for our own?

Look at ballymun though and how they have stirred people up :(

The likes of some of the stuff in America and Brazil is alive and kicking in this country unfortunately.

No, that's not the logical conclusion of what I said. However, we basically don't deport bogus asylum seekers, let alone 'economic migrants' who shouldn't be here. Thus, I repeat the question:  why should we be obliged to provide a better life for the rest of the world, whilst making a worse life for our own?

Why should they settle for no life just to protect the value of your house? We could go on all day taking alternative viewpoints. The reality is, these are people who need help. We cant nor should be expecting to help them all. But we should be doing what is within our remit to do. Just the same as what we should be doing for Iess fortunate Irish people as well. I can certainly see his concern, but would like to know how much of a drop in value is he looking at? Or is he sure this is the reason? House prices dropped all over in Q4. Id like to quantify his opinion a bit more tbh.

Listening to some on here the standard of life in the South is top notch, that extra 6 months living longer average is the deal winner, and with the better roads its impossible to argue with!! So I don't know why people are complaining!

The protesters are shouting abuse at people in their place of residence, this is quite different from issuing a statement on the subject.

Fully agree, the protests are now infiltrated by a hate mob. The Gov made a mess and this was an open goal for the far right nutters. The Gov had complete disregard for local communitys with no communication as to what is happening and what the plan is to house the asylum seekers. It took TII (the roads authority, again above in Dublin) years to understand that communication with farmers was key when dividing up their lands for roads. Seems to be a cultural thing between Dublin's ruling class and the rest of us, the ruling class still seem to think anyone outside Dublin are uneducated farmers.

I think it was Fintan O'Toole that was the only journalist that highlighted the open goal for the far right about 8 months back. Anyone outside Dublin could see what was brewing.

It's only when the public perception becomes obvious to the Dublin media that "journalists" start asking questions that ought to have been asked months ago. Pat Kenny is a perfect example on his show this morning.

In fairness not many countries have a plan for refugee crisis when a war breaks out. Look what happens in the Middle East or Africa massive refugee camps. Is the solutions the government are implementing ideal? Absolutely not, but outside of running a huge housing surplus on the off chance a refugee crisis emerges it's difficult to know what to do.
most refugee camps are across a land border though and not a 4 hour flight away
