Was It For This?

From the Union of Students in Ireland

IRISH students have warned that GAA teams from London, New York and Australia will soon end up dominating the All-Ireland Championships.

Following the weekend that saw London play in a historic Connacht final, the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) highlighted the unprecedented numbers of qualified graduates being forced to leave Ireland.

More than 120,000 young people between the ages of 15-24 have emigrated in the last four years. And, of those who have stayed behind, one in two graduates had no work at all in 2012.

Behind London’s great achievement in getting to the Connacht Final there is a tragic story of young and educated people who have had no choice but to leave Ireland,” said USI President Joe O’Connor.
