Kilkenny local elections candidate Michael McGrath wants to ban the burqa in Ireland – he also wants Ireland to ban minarets as advanced countries like Switzerland have done.
“When the Irish went abroad they didn’t adopt some alien form of dress or customs. We are told that women aren’t being forced to dress like this. However, I don’t accept that, especially in an age of equality. It just doesn’t make sense.”
“As well, women can’t work, they can’t hold down jobs while wearing burqas, so they are going to be here in Ireland on the Dole for life!reland on social welfare for life as thousands are right now.
