Horseshit imposing refugees upon a town can only create problems. How man here would be happy with a few familys moving into their precious developments. All chic liberal bullshit.

Stop talking about a town and an area you obviously know nothing about.

'Stop talking' would be enough

I wish the Irish government would take care of the homeless Irish people, you know, buy houses lying empty and house their own, then take care of refugees, but that's me!

The homeless problem isn't just a matter of a roof over their head, a lot of them have severe, complex addiction problems, so it's not just as simple as housing them

Patsy McGarry with a predictably great piece.

And before people sign into their dedicated troll accounts, he's from Ballagh and has always been a great friend to the town. Ballagh has been through a lot more than most towns and it will come out of this better than how it went it.

It's all well and good being shocked by the slow, murderous failure of a nation via news broadcasts but it's time we do a little bit ourselves to help. It's not that long ago we were the ones sending half our people out into the great unknown. This is a great opportunity for Ballagh to contribute to Irish society in a way other towns cannot or will not. To show that fear doesn't rule us.

Good stuff by Patsy. One part reminds me of the story of his father, a local councilman, "the Haw" McGarry when a lost letter was found along the roads of Ballaghaderreen (mind you, where his cattle often ate from the long acre) that was written to the Queen of England and showed that the Haw had been in back and forth correspondence with the Queen talking about horses, farming and the like and had shockingly invited her to visit Ballaghaderreen and what a great welcome she'd get there. The lost letter was found and was sent to the local papers to expose what the Haw was up to. Of course it was all a setup by the man himself. It was always a town full of characters and how great to see that though it has little itself and high unemployment, it is now a shining light to the world in how to treat those less well off than ourselves.

How many thousand council houses in Britain were allocated to Irish families in the 50s and 60s?
How many homeless have you offered accommodation to?
