Carrickmacross Women say they are fearful of Migrant Gangs
Women in the town of Carrickmacross County Monaghan say they now feel unsafe and afraid walking the streets of Carrickmacross due to large gangs of migrant men congregating around the town .  

Last Year  , the Department of Justice paid Trenthall Ltd 934k euro to find accommodation for asylum seekers in the Monaghan and Cavan area .

Trenthall which is run by former Monaghan County manager Seamus 'Banty' McEnaney began renting Hotel rooms at Treacys Hotel Carrickmacross where up to 124 asylum seekers are currently residing . 

Women in the town say the situation is now unbearable and a
n online petition for action has gathered almost 1500 signatures in the past 3 days .

Many women have been taking to social media to express their fear and experiences of life in the town . 

One woman Nichola Mc Crudden wrote about how she was sexually and physically abused  :  "I moved to Carrick to build a life for myself. I had taken up a permenant job in a local primary school.I had settled well into Carrick, got myself involved in local inititives, etc. Life was good.Little did I know I would go on a night out with friends in my local town to get physically attacked and sexually abused. I have no problem sharing my story so to make a difference. Why should innocent people suffer in silence and feel un safe in Carrickmacross. Our town is not safe no more. I walk up and down the street to go to work everyday and should i really have to cross the road to avoid all sorts.I am not from Carrick originally but I do have memories of visiting this town. It used to be a lovely place to visit. Today it is a different town altogether.Please everybody put the awareness out there.Thank you Nichola."

Another lady Emma Gollogly wrote "I work late many evenings , walking up to move my car even at 7pm from the car park to in front of the office is often scary lately . Last week one evening I finished at 10:40pm and my car was right outside my door , yet with the gangs sitting on steps next door I did not feel safe . I am also concerned that a young lady was attacked in recent weeks and yet it seems hush hush"

Another lady Maria Murnaghan wrote : "I feel very unsafe even driving up the town the way they all look at you as if we did something wrong  . I never go to the bank of Ireland as I feel so intimidated and unsafe with the large groups of them everywhere , especially accross the rd . a young woman was badly attacked on the street , the woman's name does not need to be said but that attack was disgusting, what about my daughters , your children , as a parent it is our job to keep them safe but when you dont feel safe yourself what effect is it having on them , they need to get out of our town , sitting on windowsills , spitting on the ground in front of me , no wonder I cross the street and drive almost everywhere , county councillors stand up and take notice of what we're saying and do something about it"

Another lady Grainne Morgan wrote : "Nothing to do with racism . I moved to carrickmacross almost 10 years ago and loved the town up until recently . Now I wont even go up the town and certainly wont take my kids up the town with the group of males (dont want to say immigrants or refugees as I'll be branded racist) hanging around in gangs . Its very intimidating . I dont feel safe in Carrickmacross anymore . Sad day when you dont feel safe in your own town"

A local man Philip Keegan wrote about the begging in the town: "I’m very concerned with the way our town has changed in such a short space of time . You only have to look outside the courthouse on a Wednesday morning to see that the change is not for the better. The begging on the street is ridiculous also . It’s time to draw a line in the sand before it gets worse"

Figures
 from the department of Justice show that at the end of June  , there were 7,018 asylum seekers being accommodated around Ireland - 6,082 asylum seekers in 39 permanent centres and 936 in emergency accommodation (B&Bs and rented housing) , the figure is forecast to increase to approximately 7,700 people by the end of the year with the total spending on Direct Provision expected to exceed 120 million . 

Figures from the International Protection Office show that the top 5 Countries of Origin for Asylum Seekers entering Ireland to the end of June were : 1) Albania 2) Georgia 3) Zimbabwe 4) South Africa 5) Nigeria .

carrickmacross was such a lovely little town , its just not right to have to live in fear all the time. its disgusting . so angry right now .
^
its not just carrickmacross , its everywhere . we need local politicians to stand up and grow a pair and say no enough is enough . we cant take anymore
^
seems like a very serious situation in carrickmacross . must be terrible for locals feeling on edge all the time looking over their shoulder . the roma begging thing is a real curse on small business . a lot of people will pass by shops with roma beggars outside . its very intimidating.
^
it doesn't have to be like this , Carrickmacross can be great again , people need to come out of their shell and use their vote wisely , maybe even stand in elections themselves .
^
asylum stats show that 60% of people in DP are Single , 40% single men . It was never going to end well . why would ireland be any different to whats happening in every other country . we need to reclaim our borders and our sovereignty asap

we either live in a mature society or we dont . if a mature adult wants to try conversion therapy its their business . nothing to do with anyone else

like others here , i'd be more worried about trans therapy , especially on children . its so awful

transgender therapy is much more damaging than conversion therapy . with trans therapy you have bodily mutilation , irreversible medication to stop the natural development of the body and serious side effects from drugs such as puberty blockers . why dont they ban transgender therapy .

so it will be legal for children to have double mastectomy to change gender but illegal for therapy to discourage this . transgender therapy is barbaric and yet this is perfectly ok by our government and anyone offering therapy to help children keep their existing gender is to be outlawed What has happened to ireland .
