On bank holiday Monday, May 31st, a rally to protest the killing of George Floyd, was called via social media by some young people in Dublin. It was held outside the residence of the US ambassador in the Phoenix Park. I was pleased to address them.
The well fed, well clad, Noel Grealish TD will probably never know what its like to be hungry or cold or fearful of his life, not the way thousands of refugees do.
