Two Thirds of people polled want cap on Ukrainian refugees while 83% felt Ireland does not have the services to cater for the numbers arriving




A survey commissioned by Virgin Media Television and carried out by Red C, looked at concerns around migration in Ireland in the light of ongoing nationwide protests.

83% of the people surveyed disagreed that Ireland has the services to cater for the number of people arriving here while 64% of those polled felt Ireland should cap the number of refugees entering the country from Ukraine the Independent.ie reported.

It is unclear if people were asked if the country should continue to accept unlimited numbers of mostly male asylum seekers coming from other countries beside Ukraine.

Around 40% of people polled said they would oppose a migrant plantation in their area while 15% were unsure.

Protests against migrant plantations being established in working class and rural areas around Ireland continue to spread and gain momentum and some on social media have dubiousness regarding the accuracy of the poll as a reflection of national feeling.
