Eight in Ten Believe Immigration Is Too High in Ireland

Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart, April 26, 2024


Over the past two decades, Ireland has seen a radical shift in its demographic makeup as mass migration policies saw the foreign-born population more than double since 2006 and now makes up a fifth of the entire population of the Emerald Isle.

Yet, this agenda of allowing increasing waves of migrants into the country is out of step with what the rest of the country wants, with a survey from Amárach Research on behalf of the Irish Daily Mail of 1,000 people finding that 79 per cent believe that the number of immigrants allowed in per year is “too high” as opposed to just 2 per cent who favoured more immigration.

There is also a growing sense that the neo-liberal government is not concerned with the opinion of the people on the issue, with 61 per cent saying that Dublin does not care how they feel about immigration, rising to 68 per cent among those between the ages of 35 and 54.

Additionally, nearly two-thirds (64 per cent) agreed with the notion that “the Government isn’t in control of immigration to Ireland” compared to just 20 per cent who disagreed.


Just last night fresh protests broke out in Newtownmountkennedy, County Wicklow, Ireland outside a new venue for migrant accommodation that locals said they didn’t want in their neighbourhood. {snip}

The poll comes as the government has been given “stark warnings” about the nation’s budget for the asylum system causing several government departments to exceed their allocated spending to handle the influx of foreigners.
