Contrary to what Irish media outlets will try and make you believe, the good people of Oughterard have massive support from around the country.
The pathetic “racism card” is wearing thin as thousands are saying no thanks for undocumented migration. The mentality of it being Oughterard today and your town tomorrow is resonating from village to town to city around Ireland.
The decent people who are standing up for their village against an unknown number of undocumented migrants from only God knows where, have now vowed to stand 24/7 protesting until the government get the message.
Over 2,000 people came out in force on Saturday afternoon on the Main Street in Oughterard, Co Galway, to fight back against the possible opening of Direct Provision Centre in the area.
This is the second major silent protest in the area in recent weeks with more planned until the government get the message.
An unknown number of undocumented migrants are due to be planted in the area after the government completely ignored the wishes of the good people of Oughterard.
Major legitimate concerns have grown in recent weeks about the possibility of a provision centre in the region, with locals terrified they could be inundated with migrants from anywhere and not knowing anything about their potential criminal backgrounds.
The silent protest was held as there are not enough resources in the region to house a Direct Provision Centre.
The latest developments come after 500 people attended a local community meeting to voice their concerns.
However despite the protest, the Department of Justice have yet to confirm whether or not they are to place a centre in the region. Watch the video below, share it and tell us your thoughts in the Facebook post.
