MacSharry to vote against Migration Pact as vote deferred to next week

A Sligo Leitrim TD has declared that he will vote against Ireland opting in to the EU Migration Pact – whenever the vote comes.

Independent TD Marc MacSharry aired his views in the Dáil last night on the matter.

It was eventually agreed to defer the debate and vote until next week as more deputies wanted to have their say.

Deputy MacSharry says Ireland needs a clear plan to cope with migration going forward, something that is currently not in place.
