    Following the racist comments of Donegal Fianna Fail Councillor Sean McEniff, Anti-Fascist Action Ireland and others have called for a picket on an hotel he owns in Dublin city centre.

     

    2pm - Camden Court Hotel, Camden Street, Dublin 2.

    Background:

     

    Speaking with Niall Delaney about the Traveling community on Ocean FM on January 17th 2013 McEniff said: “The situation is Niall; I think there should be an isolated community of them some place. Give them houses and keep them all together.”

    The Donegal Travellers Project says it was deeply shocked, saddened and outraged by the comment.

     

    Sinn Féin TD for Donegal North East Pádraig Mac Lochlainn said "Anti-traveller racism in all forms is unacceptable in Ireland, and it is mind boggling to think that Councillor McEniff would think ethnic slurs are tolerable.".

     

    Not long after, a house where 13 members of the Traveling Community were to be house was burnt down.

     

    Independent Thomas Pringle T.D. says that while councillors Sean McEniff and Eugene Dolan did not light the match which destroyed the €230,000 home, their comments fueled the flames of unjust hatred. “Donegal County Council bought the house for a traveller family and local councillors Seán McEniff and Eugene Dolan made racist statements about the decision, and last night the house was burned.
