Racism rife in Ireland, say Greens

Racism is rampant in Ireland.

That's according to the Green party who are holding ant-racism talks in Dublin this afternoon.

The party says Ireland's not only biased against other nationalities, but also against Irish people such as the travelling community.

Green party TD Ciaran Cuffe says something has to be done. He says that Ireland is changing fast.

However, the deputy maintains changes need to be made considering there was a racist murder last year.
