Ireland South MEP Liadh Ní Riada with Deputy Martin Ferris and Cllr Pa Daly (second right) in Tralee this afternoon.

KERRY Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris joined with Ireland South MEP Liadh Ní Riada and Cllr Pa Daly in Tralee Town Centre this lunchtime to launch Sinn Féin’s Housing & Rental Crisis campaign in Kerry.

“Every week for several years now my offices and the offices of other elected representatives are inundated by constituents who are having great difficulty in finding suitable accommodation in which to live,” Deputy Ferris.

“While there has been lots of talk on the delivery of social and affordable homes, the facts are that the delivery of these has been minuscule if not downright invisible.”

“Our party, in government, would build at least 10,000 social houses per year to try and relieve the huge housing waiting lists in all counties. We believe there is the need to double the number of affordable rental and purchase properties. On top of that we would implement an immediate rent freeze and refundable rent relief for all renters which would give one months rent back to tenants each year.”

“Landlords who benefitted from tax breaks should not be allowed to issue vacant possession notices which is a leading cause of family homelessness.”

“Enough is enough, people should not be viewed just as statistics and must be treated with dignity and respect and have an opportunity to have long-term tenure of a proper home.”

    Kerry Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris, South MEP Liadh Ní Riada and Cllr Pa Daly all on a Housing & Rental Crisis campaign and also support open boarders and unlimited migration into Ireland. How hypocritical are they?

    In fact, the illegal, economic or irregular migrants as the UN Migration Pact refers to call them are housed in direct provision centres at a cost of hundreds of millions to the native Irish tax payers. Meanwhile, native Irish go homeless in record numbers!

    How many social housing units could have been built with €400 million over 7 years!

    How many jobs for Ireland would have been created in building social housing for the Irish people and easing the numbers in private rented accommodation and reducing the cost of rents. Instead the cost went on running direct provision centres for migrants to private companies owned by a select few Irish beneficiaries like Fazyard Ltd, led by Sean Lyons and son Sean Lyons Jnr. received payments totalling €4.14m in 2017.

    Kerry Sinn Féin is supports this policy in Ireland and at European Union level.
    Todays Sinn Féin party is no longer a nationalist party. They are a liberal left European Unionist / Globalist party.

    Please be aware of, the UN Migration Pact: Europe & Ireland:

    I would just like to say at this point, that I am not racist and believe in normal levels of controlled legal migration and supporting only genuine asylum seekers and deporting the current masses illegal, economic or irregular migrants entering into the European Union and Ireland.
    I strongly believe in right of the people of Ireland and Europe should have a say on this matter, it should not just be for our politicians to decide. Our future generations futures are at stake in this social engineering experiment.
    Where is the Irish peoples referendum on this matter?
    I do not see Sinn Féin representing or campaigning for us, native Irish people. No, they support and represent the illegal or irregular migrants and their European Union masters.

    Germany hammered European nations and people like Greece for cash during the economic crisis and to this day. But, is willing to pay 78 billion euros to 2022 on migrants!

    Let us not forget our national debt was not forgiven by the ECB, IMF or the troika and it will take literally generations to pay back the €200 billion debt. Is it any wonder that Ireland is the third most indebted country in the developed world owing a staggering €201 billion!

    Wake up Ireland and be more careful with your money, your vote and your children’s future!

    Let the Geopolitical Forecaster Dr George Friedman give the non nationalist, left wing Globalist / European Unionist Sinn Féin party a reality check about being governed, supporting and subordinate to the unelected European Union bureaucrats.

    The corrupt political establishment of the western European Union nations (Ireland especially included) is clearly in the process of making a grave error by the balkanisation of their independent sovereign nation states in an attempt to destroy national patriotism and prematurely force a Federal European Union and create a super power.

    LOL, the complete opposite is happening 🙂
