O hAilpin urges people to give racism the boot

GAA star Sean Og O hAilpin has urged Irish people to put the boot into racism.

He expressed shock at a report that found widespread discrimination against migrants. The study by immigrant support group NASC found housing and employment are the key areas where migrants suffer most discrimination in Ireland.

"It is very disappointing. I am shocked," Mr O hAilpin said.

"There is absolutely no place for this in Ireland today and people have to take a stand."

The study was conducted across 171 migrants from 40 countries over 15 months.
