Nigerian grandmother loses deportation challenge

A 74-YEAR-OLD grandmother living in Ireland with her daughter and six grandchildren since 2006 has lost a High Court challenge to an order for her deportation. The decision means she cannot validly visit Ireland in the future.

Ms Justice Maureen Clark said, while she had sympathy for the grandmother, Mrs O, from Nigeria, she had chosen to pursue the route of asylum seeker rather than visiting her family here legally on a visitor’s visa.
