Meanwhile, back in January:

[Opposing the purchase of the house for the family] Fianna Fail [Donegal] county councillor Sean McEniff said: “I am not a racist or a bigot, but I believe Travellers should live in isolation.”
Fine Gael Cllr Eugene Dolan supported Mr McEniff’s comments, saying: “As far as I’m concerned they can be sent to Spike Island [a former prison in Co Cork] for all I care.”
