    Default 80% of children in Navan school 'non-nationals' - Chronicle

    The Meath Chronicle this week has reported that 80% of entrants to Scoil Mhuire's junior infants class in Navan, Co Meath, are 'non nationals'.

    Yeah, I don't like the term non-national. Why can't we just call them foreigners or immigrants? Thats what they are after all. Damn PC brigade!

    We urgently need to put a cap on the numbers allowed in here otherwise the Irish will end up a minority in their own Country.

    Because surely most of them were actually born in Ireland and hence Irish? (Unless Navan has been hit by a sudden influx of immigrants who all already happened to have very young children.)

    Ah now come on. Surely th trend has peaked and we will soon start to see a lot of these people repatriating to their home countries once they get the few (hard-earned) quid they came for and when they can get similar oppurtunities at home.

    Yes but as the years go by at this rate of immigration the numbers of classes with non Irish children will just go up and up and up....end result schools where the Irish kids are a minority even though they are going to school in the land of their Birth.

    Interesting to note that when Catalpa warned of the dangers of uncontrolled Mass Immigration he was branded a 'racist scaremongerer' 'how do you know' 'they are going home in a few years' etc etc -

    yet now it is coming to pass...

    No it has not 'peaked' by any means.

    THEY ARE NOT GOING HOME.

    THEY ARE HERE TO STAY.
