Poll shows up reluctance to resettle refugees in Ireland

The poll suggests the country is pretty evenly split between those who favour opening our doors to these refugees – 48 per cent – to those opposed – 52 per cent. Dublin and Connacht/Ulster have small majorities in favour, while middle class communities are significantly more sympathetic (among professionals, managers, and upper middle class people support for resettlement runs at two to one). And such class differences are reflected among party supporters – Fine Gael and Labour show significant positive support (61 and 56 per cent respectively) while Sinn Féin supporters are most strikingly resistant (70 per cent against).
