Broadcasting Authority - "equal allocation of airtime not necessary to achieve fairness"

Oughterard protests intensify as elderly man run over by van

Oughterard protests intensify as elderly man run over by van

Protests against a Direct Provision Centre in the town of Oughterard Galway have intensified this week with an elderly man reportedly run over by security on Tuesday. The man was rushed to hospital where he is in a stable condition . Reports of unmuzzled dogs being used by security and the presence of ex-Irish rangers on site has also been alleged .

At a public meeting held last Wednesday , Oughterard townsfolk voted by 654 votes to 14 against a local Hotel , (the Connemara Gateway) being used as a Direct Provision accommodation centre for asylum seekers .
 

  

 
Since then , a number of locals have held a round the clock vigil outside the Hotel which is currently undergoing refurbishment . 

  

 
Last Month , 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 System , up 50% on 2018 which itself was the highest since 2010.

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 released by the Reception and Integration Agency show that people from Zimbabwe , Nigeria , Pakistan , Albania and S Africa make up the top 5 nationalities currently living in Direct Provision to the end of November 2018 .  

Nationality Breakdown of Residents living in Direct Provision  
  

 
Figures released by the international protection office show there were 2,680 asylum applications lodged in Ireland between January and July this year compared to 1,949 applications for the same period last year, an overall increase of 37% . The top 5 Countries of origin for asylum seekers entering Ireland in 2019 are Albania , Georgia , Zimbabwe , South Africa and Nigeria .

they should just call them what they are - Direct 'Plantation' Centres , what other explanation is there , i mean if the stats show that most of the people aren't even genuine refugees but we keep brining in more and more and more , and we dont seem to care , then this is a plantation . that simple , no other explanation for it
#
happy for oughterard today but the centre will be moved somewhere else . fact is 92% of asylum seekers are not genuine yet we will spend 120 million opening new hotels while our homeless people rot on the streets
#
So Oughterard is going ahead . John Gibney said he met with fazyard ltd who bought the Connemara Gateway Hotel to run as a direct provision centre .
#
things will only change when they start opening DP centres in the wealthy suburbs of Dublin . This is where most Journalists live . They live in glass houses and its so easy to throw stones . But make no mistakes , as soon as their areas are targeted you will see a complete change in how journalists report on migration issues in Ireland .
#
thats crazy , top 5 nationalities living in Direct Provision are Zimbabwe , Nigeria , Pakistan , Albania and South Africa , those countries are perfectly Safe . no wars in any of those , cant understand why this is being allowed to continue . the mind boggles.

hi cathy , two wrongs dont make a right . firstly , Im not going to excuse the USA's illegal wars , I mean when Obama was president he dropped 25000 bombs a year in his illegal WARS . completely wrong and ujustified . it was revenge rather than defence. Having said that, it was Islamic Extremism that started the whole thing in the first place . It would be a very foolish person that turns a blind eye to any form of extremism. i have spoken with muslims in Ireland who said they

cathy

Perhaps it's time for Ireland to stop helping USA to bomb the home countries of the immigrant people. There countries are no longer safe for them. Ireland supports their attack by allowing US airplanes to refuel at shannon for the bombing missions
