It may be time for Christy Moore to re-write his classic song Lisdoonvarna.

The reason why. Locals in Lisdoonvarna, Co Clare, have voted overwhelmingly to reject Government plans to accommodate 115 asylum seekers in the town sending a resounding "No" to the Irish government.

Lisdoonvarna says 'no' to plan for 115 asylum seekers to move into town

The timing of this local vote, together with the national fallout from the rollout of the Ireland 2040 plan (one of the goals being the increase of the population by 1 million in the next 20 years) is an indication of the resistance Irish people have to immigration from non-European countries.

Video from the local vote may be found here:

Is #Ireland2040 really a population replacement plan?

Has the hotel owner indicated yet that if he will stick to his word and withdraw from the scheme if the locals do not support it?

In response to Mr White's public statement, the local community held a vote by secret ballot at a public meeting organised by Lisdoonvarna Fáilte.

Secret ballot ?

WTF.

I didnt think it was possible to be kicked off Political Irish, but looks like OP may have annoyed someone sufficiently to earn a temporary ban...

I haven't heard anything as of yet.

Course they don't like it. Lishdoon ain't getting any vineyards, see? Too rocky and salty.

The rest of us will have vineyards and need lots of algerians to pick the grapes, in a most tacile way.

And those of us running the show from indoors will need BJs from female immigrants, given in a most tactile way.

This is how it will be. Our Masters in bruxelles wish it. Tourist buses for lishdoon and vineyards for the rest of us.

Most referendums are by secret ballot. Seems natural this one would be too.

Although this has no legal standing what so ever , it is merely in essence an opinion poll.

This is part of our commitment to nEU empire power. And once something has been decided in the Politburo, obedience shall be expected. Even if it is not necessary. Even if previously there was a negotiated opt out.

You are not allowed to say NO.

That which is not forbidden, will be compulsory.

And there shall be no dissent.

Enforcement shall follow.

Either by means of guilt-trip, legal threats, bullying, or whatever it takes - nobody shall be allowed to say NO.

And it's not even as bitter as a FF leadership heave.

There will be virtue signalling.

No. He may be required to re-write Lisdoon altogether to make it more inclusive, don't you know? (Note to Christy: The swahili for craic is kichafu. We're off to a great start!). Sinn Fein could even sponsor a local language seminar.

What are they doing putting asylum seekers in coastal touristic places anyway. I thought the point was to put them in places where tourists could only possibly end up by accident, like Ballaghaderreen or Longford.

Yes. The opposite to a show of hands, a method favoured greatly by Uno Duce Haughey.

So long as they are being foisted on a MaFFia stronghold such as Clare, I have no problem with it. In fact if it was that morass that elects both Martin and McGrath it would be even better.

Offaly is my preferred option.
