In what can only be described as one of the most unbelievable scenes to ever be witnessed in Dublin Airport since this outbreak begun, there’s been mass outrage at migrants being flown into Ireland to pick fruit during the coronavirus lockdown.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has announced that he agrees with the Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan in relation to Keelings fruit company flying in large number of migrants to Ireland to pick fruit.
“I share the discomfort expressed by the Chief Medical Officer about the report of a large number of people coming to Ireland earlier this week to work in the horiculture sector”, RTE reports.
The statement comes after much controversy surrounding the decision by Keelings fruit company to fly in fruitpickers from Bulgaria to Ireland to pick fruit.
In a statement this evening, Varadkar said: “We need to keep our airports and ports open so essential goods and essential workers can get in and out of the country and Irish citizens and residents can return home.
“However, we need to keep travel to a minimum and ensure that passengers are interviewed on arrival and that quarantine is observed.”
