This is no longer ‘migration’; it is ‘replacement’.
In the 1998 movie, ‘Waking Ned Devine‘, the inhabitants of Tully More collude to acquire the proceeds of a jackpot-winning Irish National Lottery ticket that actually belongs to a dead man – Ned Devine. On iMDB the movie got good reviews, both from users (7.3/10), and from critics (71/100). The San Francisco Chronicle rated the movie at 100.
A tiny village in Ireland’s quaint west named Tully More (Tuliagh Morh) has only 52 inhabitants. They’re poor but live rich lives in the wet green by the sea. Neighborliness is the fine art of practicing tolerance toward a raft of human eccentricities, from a singing postmistress to a meddling snoop generally regarded as “witchy” to a substitute parish priest who frankly isn’t sure about God.

When we think about Irish culture, we might visualize all of the ingredients present in ‘Waking‘: the ubiquitous rain; the lush, green fields; Catholic priests; the wry humor; the necessity of drinking whiskey at every occasion; the simple life; the love of dance and music; the sense of connection and community; Guinness; limericks; the Blarney Stone; Sinéad O’Connor – well the last three weren’t in the film, but you get the picture.
In 2018, the inhabitants of Lisdoonvarna colluded to try and determine their own destiny, in the same way those fictional Tully More folk did. The issue is that this small village of 300 people, with perhaps another 400 strewn out into the rural and farm areas, is now the brand-spanking new home for an asylum centre (actually the re-purposed King Thomond Hotel), which is meant to house 115 ‘asylum seekers‘, which seems to be an optimistically-low and curiously-exact number.
Plans for this exciting new project for Lisdoonvarna were unveiled only at the beginning of this year. Upon hearing these plans, the villagers gathered and voted overwhelmingly (93%)¹ to not accepting the asylum ‘dreamers‘, which naturally would increase the population by 33% in a short amount of time. Alas! Both the Irish Reception & Integration Agency (nice name) and the Ministry of Justice said don’t worry, you’ll manage, we understand you don’t want them, but the first shipment of dreamers must proceed immediately. The first consignment to the newly-purposed hotel is expected next week.
This secretive mission to utterly transform village and towns, large and small (and tiny), is now gathering pace across Europe, even as people are starting to wake up and notice what is being inflicted upon them. No longer under the guise of ‘enriching multiculturalism‘, the European Union is in a fast dash against people’s growing perception and realization that this is no longer ‘diversity is our strength‘ – as the villagers of Lisdoonvarna understand (and perhaps Tully More too, if they could) – this is deliberate, cultural replacement.
