"You Get Used to This Shithole", Irish Country Man Tells Syrian Refugee
Irish Country Man, 63, today assured Syrian refugee Tarek Farzat, 34, that "you get used to this shithole" as both men were leaving the local post office in rural Roscommon.
Having first met Mr. Farzat - who escaped Homs before the Assad regime began its second carpet bombing of his home city - while buying a golly bar in the local Spar, the Irish Country Man reassured him that "this godforsaken place eventually grows on you".
Mr. Farzat - whose father, sister, nephew, two nieces, four aunts and six uncles were killed during the ongoing Syrian Civil War - had called to the post office to check if mail had arrived from his remaining family members in Syria.
Collecting his state pension, Irish Country Man cautioned Mr. Farzat - whose wife, Ranim, had cried tears of joy when their asylum application was approved by the Irish government - not to expect "any favours from those shower of bastards above in Dublin".
Irish Country Man, whose wife regularly delivers home baked goods to the Farzats and other refugees, bid Mr. Farzat farewell by warning that "as bad as that Assad fellah is, that fucker Varadkar isn't far off".
