Donegal and Ireland is already enriched long before Direct Provision

Donegal TD Thomas Pringle spoke recently about the cultural benefits Asylum Seekers will bring to Letterkenny on foot of a new direct provision centre in the town. While he didn't give any examples or explain what benefits exactly , as someone who has lived with a Direct Provision centre in my own town since 2006 , I can honestly say I haven't felt any cultural or societal benefits from the arrival of asylum seekers some 14 years ago .
