    UL becomes a University of Sanctuary

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

    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?

    The answer to your question is no it isn't appropriate taxpayers should be paying for this, why dont they just go back to where they came from.

    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.

    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.

    Who in their right mind would seek any sort of sanctuary in Limerick?

    These UL folks have a brass neck on them to pretend that there would be sanctuary in Limerick.

    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.
