    Tent City Deja Vu Episode 231
    Niall Boylan

In this episode, Niall is getting the reaction of listeners to Tent City Deja Vu. Approximately 100 tents occupied by asylum seekers were removed from Dublin’s Grand Canal this morning for the third time this month. The multi-agency operation aimed to move occupants to alternative accommodation, with buses ready to transport them. The government stated that new beds have become available in Citywest and other locations across the country, easing the pressure on Dublin.

This recurring issue has sparked debate about the government’s priorities. While the government claims that these moves are necessary to provide better facilities and reduce pressure on the city, critics argue that resources are being diverted from pressing issues affecting Irish citizens.

Niall opens up the lines to callers.

Some callers are fed up with the government prioritizing migrants over its own citizens. They argue that many Irish people are homeless and struggling, yet the government continues to allocate resources to asylum seekers. They believe the government needs to focus on the needs of the Irish people first, improving healthcare, making housing affordable, and addressing the struggles of taxpayers before spending on migrant camps.

Niall wraps up by highlighting the debate and differing opinions on how the government is handling the asylum seeker situation in relation to the needs of Irish citizens.
