    Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy noted the attack had a serious effect on the woman but also had to take into account that Udeh was a foreign national and had entered a guilty plea.

    The judges also have a lot to answer for. He only entered a guilty plea to get a lesser sentence.
    He initially denied everything but was found out on forensic evidence – he had no choice.
    The sentence is a disgrace, as is the fact that he can stay here and get taxpayers’ money to pay high legal fess to present a clearly bogus case to stay in Ireland.

    A very sick joke.

    For this woman’s sake I hope they deport this wretch upon completion of his sentence. Shame on any human rights parasitical lawyer who helps him in his bid to remain.

    I wonder how this will affect his asylum application? He should be fingerprinted and shipped home after completion of the sentence.

    Being a foreigner should not be a mitigating factor it should be an aggravting factor..he came here seeking protection and shelter and then attacks one of his hosts..long sentence and automatic deportation should be mandatory.

    Has to “Take into account that he was a foreign national” what does that even mean? His race and nationality will make it more difficult for him in prision..even if true he should have considered that before carrying out the violent rape of a citizen who’s country he continues to claim asylum from.

    It means if you are Irish and rape someone you get a longer sentence. Makes perfect sense to me….

    But not if you’re drunk. If you’re drunk and Irish and really sorry, they are mitigating circumstances. He must be deported on completion of sentence.

    And People Before Profit (foreigners before Irish) politician Bríd Smyth said that when we as Irish people speak of “our own” that ALL these foreigners are “our own”. Another immigrant crime, another Irish woman raped which would not have happened had there been no multiculturalism. So anyone who supports multiculturalism has #BloodOnTheirHands

    These #OpenBorderExtremists also say that “who lives here belongs here”, does this lovely enricher?

    Prosecution should appeal the sentence. Prison is hard and though regardless of ethnicity.

    “Udeh came to Ireland in 2009 and had applied for and been refused asylum twice. He is now appealing his position to the Refugee Appeals Tribunal.”

    I want you all to take note what goes on in such a process. It is the immigration-pushing industry who advises and schools these economic welfare chancers in how to get into and how to stay in Ireland. They advise them to prolong the asylum process as long as possible because then they make the case that because the “enricher” has been here for so long, the centre of focus (the main interest of the enrichers life) is now centred in Ireland and thus to deport the enricher is to infringe upon their rights or cause Ireland to be seen in a poor light internationally in the humanitarian world power stakes, it is true therefore these immigration-pushers like Immigrant Council of Ireland have the rape of this woman on their hands.

    A quote from Sinn Fein in 2003 in response to a report by the Immigrant Council of Ireland.

    “The Council has called on political leaders and the Government especially to accept and publicly declare that immigration is a permanent and positive reality in Irish society, with the potential to bring enormous social, cultural, and economic benefit to this island. Sinn Féin can endorse this statement without any hesitation whatsoever, and I challenge both the Taoiseach and the Justice Minister to set a positive and responsible example for other Irish political leaders by doing the same.”

    Another case today a guy got over seven years. Who decides these matters. Surly 10-15 years at least.
    And what is this muppet dong in the country after lying clearly about his circumstances in order to delay going back to Nigeria.
    Who is feeding this animal. The tax payer no doubt.
    Now that labour are gone let’s hope the liberals don’t get back in power so we can make some positive changes to this country before Sinn Fein make a mess of it again in 5 years

    Not all refugees are rapists. The ones that are should be sent home with their sentences enforced to be carried out in their home country. It would take a very xenophobic person to think that immigration doesn’t enrich the population, especially considering the amount of our people, both historically and currently away from home.
