It's Stephen Harper's fault - he let him enter in the first place.
I wonder how many people in this country who gush over Trudeau and how wonderfully progressive he is etc., would be able to name his predecessor, even if it's less than two years ago.

Maybe he knows nothing about fball!!

There is a fair chance as he knows nothing full stop. Best to ignore idiots like him.

The documentary about Syrian refugees in Roscommon on TV3 tonight was very good.

Between the hotel in Rooskey being burned down and Ireland agreeing to take a fairly paltry 5 refugees from those two boats in the Mediterranean this week, it's pretty depressing that we're not taking more of a lead in dealing with this crisis that's been going on for 5+ years now. Plenty of Irish people are willing to criticise Trump for his stance on refugees but it's a bit hypocritical tbh considering we're not doing as much as we could.

A sort of "we're against racism but we don't want any of them oil blacks coming here".
Fire scene being examined but the thinking is deliberate so more intimidation.

What a coincidence that a hotel that had been earmarked for Direct Provision in Moville was the target of an arson attack, and now the same in Roosky.

Here's a still from the comments section of a video by a far right sc**bag named Rowan Croft, a seriously dangerous b**tard.

Who on earth could be responsible for this, and what type of people could they be? That's a rhetorical question, obviously.

Landing a bunch of refugees down to an abandoned hotel in rural Leitrim surely isn't the most sensible thing.
There is literally nothing in Rooskey except the Shannon flowing through it
Another genius idea was to house refugees in the former army barracks in mullingar or longford
Great, land them into a building that has been abandoned for 5+ years.
