    Live At The May Bank Holiday Protest Episode 220
    Niall Boylan

In this episode, Niall covers the May Bank Holiday protest, asking participants why they are attending and what their concerns are.

The protest comes in response to the emergence of a new migrant “tent city” along the banks of the Grand Canal in Dublin. Despite government assurances that such encampments would not be tolerated, the number of tents has risen, sparking frustration and calls for action.

While the protest is primarily focused on the immigration crisis, many participants are also protesting against broader government failures, including housing, healthcare, and the cost of living. Some see the protest as an opportunity to demand better solutions and hold political leaders accountable.

On the other hand, there are counter-protests organized by groups who believe that the national protest is primarily about immigration and label it as a far-right demonstration.

Niall opens up the lines to callers to discuss their reasons for attending the protest or their concerns if they are not participating. Those involved in the counter-protest are also invited to share their perspective.

Some callers express their solidarity with those affected by the immigration crisis and emphasize the need to demand better solutions from the government. They highlight that the protest is not just about immigration but also about holding leaders accountable for failures in housing, healthcare, and the cost of living.

The protest highlights the public’s concerns regarding the immigration crisis and broader issues of government accountability. It’s a significant moment for citizens to voice their frustrations and demand meaningful change.
