Over 2 hundred signatures have been gathered as part of a campaign to stop the deportation of four Nigerians from Kenmare. The three sisters and one brother have been living in the town for almost four and a half years but are on a list waiting to be deported back to Nigeria. The petition is to be sent to the Minister for Justice along with a request for the four to be allowed stay in Kenmare. Michael O Leary is spearheading the campaign. One of the girls Teo is very emotional at the prospect of being sent back.
