1 in 5 winners of the All Ireland Scholarships from ROI are New Irish

One in five winners of the All Ireland Scholarships from the Republic are from the new Irish community.
?New Irish? soaring with study grants - Metro Eireann


Which by any standards is an amazing achievement folks!

Congratulations to those who won!:cool:

To qualify for the scholarship, which is exclusively for high-flying students attending a non-fee paying secondary school, applicants must be Leaving Certificate candidates and also exempted from examination fees.
 
Metro Éireann has learned that of 100 students who secured one of the JP McManus-sponsored scholarships in the Republic this year, at least 20 of them have an immigrant background.
 
In Dublin alone, five of the 10 recipients have an ethnic minority background.

What is wrong with Irish kids these days...?

Was a time they got 100% of the awards ....

It takes outsiders to appreciate what can be achieved in our first world country, with the services provided through our government thanks to the workers tax's.
PS
Some day the dumb b"£$ers in the sink estates might cop on Education will free them, not welfare handouts.

Long live the Republic

It's probably a good idea to see what percentage of children are "new Irish" before deciding whether or not this is remarkable.
Yerra, it's a Catalpast OP involving "new" Irish, so I very much doubt he has much interest in following it up - it's just another plausibly-deniable coat-trailing but pussyfooted invitation for racist comment.

He may even be able to spot these scholarship winners by sight if they stray into Blanchardstown shopping centre.

And they could explain to him how to spell "Ireland".

looks like many are European so not racist, looks like you pull out race cards at the drop of a hat instead of
reading the flipping thing, the students must be exempt from exam fees so parents will be on social welfare but also pretty annoying for the working class Irish who don;t get free bus passes,free exam fees and the back to school stuff etc,,

This is why Trump and Brexit happened, the working class simply had enough of snowflake socialists spoofing their
bullsh1t while native working class communities have to deal with outside competition for resources.

Fair play to those kids who got into third level for free, its just a bit rich when the bill comes in the door for the
working class parents whose kid did not get in because it was too expensive to attend college.

Gettit ??

Brexit and Trump happened because rust belt communities in both countries swallowed a turd and both will be the long term sufferers for their gullability.

I got no freebies either here or in the US and my kids went on to be quite successful in school and college and now earn decent incomes. I certainly felt a tinge of resentment when many got those top ups you mention while I was only marginally above that level and didn't, but, there is no such relationship as between poorer people getting a leg up from the state and less poor failing to make the grade because of it. None.

If it happens at all statistically, there are other factors at play.

Nothing necessarily wrong at all. I believe we are getting a lot of good people from Eastern Europe and other countries and I believe we have lost many good people over the decades also.

Absolutely spot on! The first people to get on their bikes and leave Ireland in the bad times are always the most highly motivated, desperately determined to find work. There is no mystery in that. The only mystery is why, among people as familiar with what drives emigration as we Irish are, we still have clowns who believe that immigrants to our island are here to sponge off us.

You'd wonder how these people have the time to be winning anything, what with their ongoing siege of Blanch Shopping Centre and all.

Aren’t these people meant to be begging on the street, mugging people or planning a violent Buddhist overthrow of the govt? That’s not enough, now they have to integrate into OUR society, excelling in OUR education system?

This is terrible. Next thing you know the kids of these immigrants will be trying to play for Munster or running for election to lead the country or something.

Now that's a lovely thing to say and the first genuinely Chrissmassy thing posted up.

Trouble is, all those people that got on their bikes were trained up at great cost to the taxpayer, and owe some lingering allegiance to the place they were brought up in. In any normal sociiety these would be the innovators who would thrust the country forward toward wealth and full employment, and a unique and interesting future.

They are replaced, because we simply can't be doing with any of that ambition stuff with low skilled, low expectation operatives from abroad at the behest, and to the great benefit of a land and inheritance based class elite.

I'ts kind of ugly.

No 16 year old owes aliegence to a country. And to use a broad brush (which you have to do when speaking about trends), there’s a reason that if you put 1000 kids from China, Ireland, Nigeria and India and give them the same education, the kids from Chin and India will do disproportionately better due to the cultural focus on academic excellence they’ll receive at home.

Rote learning (which is what the majority of secondary school work is) rewards the time you put in. If you’re spending 2 hours more a day than the other kids, you’ll more than likely do better.

Great news. I've been impressed by our new European arrivals. By and large, they work hard and don't complain.

They'll help pay for pensions too. Its a win-win situation.
What could possibly go wrong?
Its not like we've seen such wishful thinking go disastorously wrong before or anything.
Its all simply great and fabulous.
