Rosslare locals concerned at lost opportunity for tourism as vacant Hotel used for asylum seekers.
Locals living in Rosslare are concerned at the impact on the tourism trade in the area after a 25 bed Hotel was contracted by government to house asylum seekers .
The Hotel Rosslare with its stunning views of Rosslare Harbour and Bay was purchased last October for a sum of 420,000 by a monaghan based consortium headed by John McEnaney , the son of former wexford football manager seamus McEnaney .
The Hotel boasts 25 ensuite bedrooms many with fantastic sea views and private balcony.
The owners recently entered into a contract with government to house an overspill of asylum seekers from other Hotels around Ireland as the number of asylum seekers arriving in Ireland continues to grow rapidly. Figures released by the International Protection Office show a 25% increase in asylum applications last year compared to 2017 . The top country of origin for asylum seekers entering Ireland last year was Albania and Georgia .
