Maybe because there isn't mass immigration into ireland, very manageable numbers and one of the hardest countries to claim asylum in.Not even one token commentator sceptical on whether or not mass immigration is in the Irish people's interest is allowed in the Irish media. This is North Korean territory.

Largest demographic change since the plantation of Ulster and yet we don't even have a single media commentator critical of it. Not even a " maybe we should think about this one" or even a "let's fix our homeless and hospital trolley crisis". This is not normal.
If you think the trolley crisis and housing crisis is the fault of migrants then you're seriously delusional.
We don’t live in a country , we haven’t lived in a country since 2004 ,I have to get this story out of my system. Excuse the rant.
I’ve worked with countless immigrants over the past fifteen years and my experience is that they just don’t have much regard for this country. Now plenty of Irish don’t have much regard for this country but there’s a core group of us that do and this keeps the whole thing together.
One personal experience has really brought home the truth of the matter to me. For a few years I worked in a factory where certain sections were majority foreign and I’d often go a full day not hearing any English spoken apart from the girl on the till in the canteen. I became friendly with a Nigerian fella on account of the fact that none of us could speak Polish so we had no one else to talk to. I worked night shifts with him and got to know him pretty well as there are points in the middle of the night where you have to stop working and talk to someone to keep yourself awake. The kinda stuff you talk about tends to be frank and personal at that hour rather than merely football and the weather. He told me about how he got into the country and his situation back home (well-off family who somehow managed to get British citizenship and so he ended up in Ireland). I even came clean with him that I was no fan of mass-immigration and he sort of saw my side of things. I thought he was a decent sort, not a bad worker but always had some get-rich-quick scheme on the side. He took a few months off, once, to go over to London and work as a limousine driver for premier league stars (this didn’t bring in the money he thought it would and he came back looking sorry). He ended up marrying a Nigerian woman despite telling me for years that he wouldn’t go near them. She got pregnant and began telling him of her dreams of the high-life – trips to New York, Caribbean cruises ect. He started sweating and the schemes became more bizarre. I moved on from that place and the last thing I heard about him was that his wife had gotten a big job in Canada and he was going to follow over. A few days ago I bumped into an old work colleague and I asked about my old Nigerian friend only to get a look and a ‘Didn’t you hear!?!’ It turns out that this Nigerian guy lodged a fraudulent cheque into his account for €50k and then transferred it into another account and then skipped the country. Apparently, the bank is still chasing the money and the man but are unlikely to get either. I’m not sure why, but it hurt me personally like a punch in the balls.
He was the nicest Nigerian I’ve ever met, but he was still here first and foremost for material gain and it’s very difficult to run a country when so many of the inhabitants are foreigners lured by high wages and dreams of making big money; we’re effectively becoming one big Klondike and the fabric of society will evaporate if this keeps up. If you travel up and down the west coast you’ll meet a few Germans and Brits who came here to make organic jam and paint Atlantic sunsets but outside of that the average immigrant is just a bee that followed the honey.
Don’t waste your time replying to him, he is not interested in debateDo you think it's normal that we don't even have one token critic of immigration in the Irish media?
