County Clare gets third Direct Provision Centre

County Clare gets third Direct Provision Centre
Clare Lodge in Ennis will become the third Direct Provision Centre in County Clare . The Department of Justice has confirmed that the hotel will re-open its doors to asylum seekers with 65 adults set to arrive shortly in the town. 

The two other centres in Clare are Knockalisheen in Meelick , a state owned centre run by Aramark ltd accommodating 275 asylum seekers and the King Thomond Hotel lisdoonvarna owned by Marcus White accommodating 115 asylum seekers which opened its doors last summer despite a vote by local residents against the centre (197 votes against to 15 in favour) .

In August , A Department of Public Expenditure report "Direct Provision : Overview of current accommodation expenditure" indicated that upwards of €120 million would be spent this year on the Direct Provision Accommodation , up 50% on 2018 . 

The Figures show that there are 7,018 asylum seekers being accommodated around Ireland at the end of June , - 6,082 asylum seekers in 39 permanent centres and 936 in emergency accommodation (B&Bs , rented housing etc) , the figure is forecast to increase to approximately 7,700 people by the end of the year .

According to the report , Ireland is experiencing "the highest level of net inward migration since 2008" and the rise in costs is largely due to a rapid growth in the number of asylum applicants , projected this year to be up 40% on 2018. 

Figures from the department of Justice show there were 3,762 asylum applications lodged in Ireland between January and September compared to 2,641 for the same period last year, an overall increase of 42% .

The top 5 Countries of origin for asylum seekers entering Ireland in 2019 are Albania , Georgia , Zimbabwe , South Africa and Nigeria . 

Minister of State Seán Kyne announced that a tender process is ongoing in the west of Ireland to find new locations for asylum seeker centres .

If the countries from where these Ecoparasites came from had to pay the bill,we would quickly reduce so called refugee movement. The UN, EU, or any person who promotes the Plantation of Ireland by foreign nationals over the interests of its own Soverign People are TRAITORS. We have had enough of our own Irish Traitors in our Irish History and we do not need FOREIGN TRAITORS. Watch out, we are watching you.....scum
