It's a mistake to elect a Nigerian for mayor. All you have to do is look at Nigeria to see why.

"Stupid Irish?" This is going on everywhere. What our ancestors built and died for, we are giving away.

I think This is a perversion of Irish Culture. Ireland is for Irish people. Not Nigerians from Africa. Nigerian should run for mayor in Nigeria. Not in Ireland. The time my Grnadparents be spending in there grave right now if they knew a Non Irish person is Mayor of there Country now. The Irish Might as well find undiscovered Territory in Canada or somewhere here in the United States and start a New Ireland or something. Oh well, I hope you liberals will be Happy when you learn the hard way what things are going to be like now.

Why in the hell do white people get so upset when a black person is thrust into leadership roles?

It's not that he's black. It's that he's Nigerian. Have you looked at Nigeria lately?

DEAR FRIEND DAFFERTY , according to the news release ,said mayor has been in Ireland for 7 [seven] years so get over it . Times change , things change . About the only thing that doesn't change is the small mindedness of some people . GROW UP !!

as i said and in fareness id know more than you .. there was NOT an election.. the only election we ever have is for government and pressident.. so you really are as thick as your postings.... im not like you , im not outside of the country , i am actually in the capital of my own country so would know a dam site more than you... and if the people had the choice i can tell you they wouldnt elect a black man... he has had death threats ever since and is under armed guard. so i think that says it all .

WHAT hope is there when one man cannot give another his DUE...

This gentleman secured a prestigious job above every other candidate, that's a FACT.. Live with it.
You picked out EVERY negative comment in the book and chose NOT to see the one highly Positive one,
why? would jealousy be the reason?
Was passing through here when I saw this, and , as a fellow country-woman...felt I'd try to redress the balance and offer my congrats to our VERY welcome new Mayor.

jelouse no .. and your a turn coat for suporting those people over our own which idicates your proberly of foriegn stock in your history .. and also it wasnt a choice by the people of Eire its just local council... the only reason people like him get these places is to make the world think that Eire is excepting everyone but in truth Eire is not an excepting place at all as shown in all walks of life.. and if you think it does except then why is there over 50 thousand irish people turned away when they try to return after a period of more than 2 yrs away ? i think you need to research what is happening here and lean towards the middle or the right and not too much on the left. it wouldnt be a suprise if you voted the money grabbing bertie in the elections .. and they were a fix as students most of which couldnt get home to post there vote .. he new they wouldnt vote for him in key areas so he placed the vote on the thursday. if you encourage people into places like mayor then whats next a TD and then a black Taoiseach or pressident .. this country is to small to cope with all that and itl damage our heritage and culture.. havent you heard of the nigerian man that was a solicitor here and he has just been found guilty of trafficing 14 people into Eire.. trust its not that hes black its that hes a nigerian .. try to study or ask people what they are like.. where has the irish backbone gone ? fighting irish dont make me laugh they are throwing in the towel and saying walk over me.

You Irish are pretty good at emigrating as well, you know. But don't take any notice of "John Canada" - he is a Moslem, and is NOT in Canada, but Saudi. he is using a proxy so it looks like he is Canadian. At least I am a REAL Englishman, not some Moslem faker.
LOL interesting. I guess immigrants are only for everyone ELSE.
