Shocking scenes at Myrtleville beach today as word spread of refugees coming ashore from a boat, carrying their meager possessions in Centra bags. It is thought they were seeking sanctuary from the fallout of the Brexit vote.
Their leader – identified only as Lynchie – was unable to enlighten onlookers as to their plight merely stating he was glad to be back on land and the sea was “feckin freezin”.
The group were helped on arrival by Barbara Anne Richardson, who supported them with coffee and kind words after their harrowing trip.
It is not known why Myrtleville was chosen as their landing point but members of the Cregan-Condon crime family were sighted on the beach. It is feared trafficking may be the latest in their nefarious endeavours.
