Poll: terror fears, but refugees welcome
There is growing concern that Ireland's immigration policy will be exploited by terrorists who will come here posing as genuine migrants, according to new Sunday Independent/Kantar Millward Brown poll.
The poll found that 62pc of people fear terrorists from the Middle East and Africa could relocate to Ireland.
The findings show refugees are broadly welcomed by the Irish public but opinions on immigration appear divided across different social classes, with the jobless and low-paid most fearful.
Some 54pc said they would not object to a refugee centre in their community.
