Comments by Independent TD Noel Grealish have been branded as “racist” after he told the Dáil that €10 billion has been sent abroad over the last eight years.
The Galway West TD told the Dáil that the money has been sent to countries such as Poland, Nigeria, the UK and France.
He asked if Revenue or the Department of Finance had anyway of tracking where this money was coming from.
Amid palpable tension in the Dáil chamber, Solidarity-PBP TD Ruth Coppinger said the question was an example of disgraceful racism.
