LATEST PRESS RELEASE

18 Feb. 2018

Leo and Fintan's Discordant Duet

Questioned about the capacity of the construction sector to build the homes and infrastructural projects envisaged in the National Planning Framework, Leo Varadkar said Ireland may benefit from more migrant workers in the years ahead.

He said that at the height of the boom Ireland had been relying on immigrants working in the construction industry to build 80,000 homes a year.
"One of the ways we were able to do that was through migration and having construction workers come in from other countries. We are going to need that again."

 

Writing in Ship Of Fools (2009; pp118/119) Fintan O'Toole wrote (safely after the event) "The height of absurdity was reached in the last years of the boom when Ireland was importing construction workers from Central and Eastern Europe to build the houses in which they themselves would live. In 2006, 13% of the workforce in Irish construction was made up of migrant workers.

 

Many builders were relying on these workers to rent the houses the last  wave of migrant workers had built, while they themselves built the houses for the expected next wave of Eastern European builders  to rent".

 

Simon Coveney, on the News at One on 16 Feb. said that probably 50% of the expected 1 million population increase would be immigrants. That would make the immigrant population 1 in 5 nationally and obviously far more in the larger conurbations. Did anyone ask if that is what Irish people want?

OIREACHTAS HEARING ON REGULARISING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

Áine Ní Chonaill, PRO and Ted Neville of the ICP Executive Committee attended a recent Oireachtas committee hearing


IMMIGRANTS DON'T TAKE UP SPACE!

"Escaping the scarcity of Croatia for the abundance of Dublin, via Ryanair"

This video is of a song very popular in Croatia in the summer of 2016. It is about "escaping the scarcity of Croatia for the abundance of Dublin, via Ryanair". The Croatian press says 10,000 young Croatians have emigrated to Ireland in the last 3 years.

Does anyone really think this has nothing to do with our current accommodation crisis? Eastern Europeans and Indian IT guys just don't take up space. Yeah!

It takes minutes to buy a Ryanair ticket; years to build accommodation.
