Scholarships to be given to people in Direct Provision as UL becomes a University of Sanctuary

Thejournal.ie said:
UNIVERSITY OF LIMERICK has been designated as a “University of Sanctuary” in recognition of its initiatives welcoming asylum seekers and refugees into its university community.
The university is awarding 17 academic scholarships to people aged over 22 who live in Direct Provision.
Dr Mairead Moriarty, Chair of the University of Limerick’s Sanctuary steering committee said: "The current refugee crisis tests the inner strength of our educational culture. At the University of Limerick we firmly believe that a University education should be a possibility for all."
Is it appropriate that taxpayers should be paying to educate people for free when many working class Irish cannot afford the registration fees and accommodation?

It is 17 scholarships, not a big number but not too insignificant to be labelled as derisory. What would be more interesting is the total number of scholsrships handed out, to whom and who funds it, as a comparison. As it is this article is little more than click bait.

Why do people allow the powers that be to waste Irish taxpayers money on such hare brained schemes. Its madness!

Make UL a sanctuary from taxpayers funds.

Then we'll see how long their "tolerance" lasts.

Taxpayer is being ridden again by the "education" industry.

Scum, just another kick in the face of the Irish people.
Two past ministers for justice are on record as saying 90% of Asylum seekers are bogus
and that a generous figure. Handing out scholarships over the heads of Irish people to
illegal lying infiltrators.
Imported SJW terms and actions from the leftist trash in the USA.

There were around a thousand new Nigerian citizens this year. How? Nigeria is so far away.

Genuinely curious why we seem to get so many members of one specific nationality when there is no geographical explanation.

That's an interesting point. You know we have too many Nigerians when there's a Nigerian gang in Ireland lending money to one of it not the most violent Irish gang in the country. Did the government ever tackle the question of why so much money was being sent to Nigeria by Nigerians living in Ireland? In 2012 there were roughly 17,000 Nigerians living in Ireland and 500 million euro was sent from here by Nigerians back to Nigeria.

Because the Irish people roll over 100% of the time on everything.

Fighting-Irish and all that.

Imperative that this doesnt turn into a US-style "sanctuary-campus" where theres a policy of non cooperation with the immigration-cops.

I wonder what would happen if any of the 17 fail in their final appeal to remain?

Would being in University be offered as a excuse to remain?

Yes. Many of the working class Irish also get educated for 'free' through grants.

That's not an argument against these scholarships.
