Galway - Asylum Seekers rushed in to Seaside Village of Kinvara , no consultation with locals
The beautiful seaside village of Kinvarra, in southwest Galway is reeling in shock this week after it emerged the Department of Justice had rushed asylum seekers into the local Merriman Hotel without any prior notification or consultation with the local community . 

One local Resident David O'Reilly said that all of a sudden the Minister appeared , with local politicians , Media and NGO representatives .. "The minister was there , the local politicians , the NGOs and the local media were all pushing this over the line , there was a shyness of people to even mention their opposition even though it was there" . 

Mr O'Reilly said that he was told by the local Media  "we're not allowed to interview you"  and added . "I got a text from the local radio station telling me that they will never interview me" .

Mr O'Reilly explained that he and a number of locals protested outside the Hotel on Sunday and took a quick poll of people's reaction to the news . 

We were protesting outside the Merriman , we took a poll of 50 local people which is about 5% of the village and found that most people were against the asylum centre , then we asked if you fill up the whole hotel with asylum seekers how would you feel then , 90% of people said that was not acceptable , that would be approaching 10% of a very beautiful tourist village , we asked a couple of other questions , do you think they are economic migrants or refugees , for every 1 person that said refugee , 2 people said economic migrants , finally , this is the most interesting question we asked . what percent of foreign nationals do you think is too much for your village , 40% of people said 10% or less , 30% said 20% or less , of the people who said they were happy with 100 asylum seekers in the hotel those people were quite happy with the number of non nationals in the village to rise to 80 to 100% 


In September ,  a similar proposal to house asylum seekers in the galway village of Oughterard was eventually abandoned after facing strong local opposition and ongoing protests while in Ballinamore, Co Leitrim protests continue against plans to house asylum seekers in a newly refurbished 3 and 4 bed apartment complex while in Achill Co Mayo protesters maintain a vigil outside the Achill head Hotel against the imminent arrival of asylum seekers there.

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 System , up 50% on 2018 . 

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 .

an online poll by niall boylan of 2000 people found that 75% of those surveyed would be against a direct provision centre opening in their area , 8% were unsure while just 17% were in favour

^
poor kinvarra . i feel sorry for rural ireland . all these direct provision centres . illegal migration has been replaced by asylum seeking , most asylum seekers are coming from safe countries , we should be able to say no at the airport , i'm sorry but your not a refugee . something needs to be done about this .
^
so underhanded the way the justice department is operating . it has no respect for communities . forcing things on them that they clearly dont want .
^
What can the average citizen do who is outraged by the rape of Our Country. Do not shout at tv,solve problem over a pint,come home in a rage and upset the family,ask  a politician or party for help. Do what we did before and made famous globally, boycott..boycott..Boycott! Oh,and do not encourage this Rape,Plantation,Destruction of everything IRISH. The clock is ticking and we have already lost the last 100 years....up to you now....move it

they seem to pick all the tourist spots , must be trying to keep the tourists away by using up all the hotels . the whole thing is so sinister and strange . cant get my head around it

Hi Again Charlie,

You said: ""they seem to pick all the tourist spots , must be trying to keep the tourists away by using up all the hotels . the whole thing is so sinister and strange . cant get my head around it""

Charlie, you DO NOT KNOW how accurate you actually are!. Recent figures suggest that the service industry in Ireland is badly suffering. Now the article from RTE used the term Service Industry, which is actually an all encompassing term for The Hotel Industry among other associated companies and services within the Hotel industry itself, of course among others such as banking, construction and so on.

The construction industry has not recovered to pre-2008 figures and only accounts for around 50% of it's pre-2008 numbers overall. Banking as recent news reports suggest is creaking again (it claims) under pressure from the looming Brexit hammer and uneven competition from both European Banks as well as International Banks. The Hotel industry which at one time claimed an employment share of around 65 - 66% pre-2008 is slowing at quite a pace also, but there were no current figures and it appears all shortfall is ALSO being blamed on Brexit!.

THE very latest I could find was from a French think tank (believe it or not) which suggested a marked % fall in the services industry up to 2017 with somewhat of an improvement for the months of January & February of this year, 2019.

Just some food for thought (forgive the pun), which I thought I would send your way on reading your comments on the subject. Definitely, I think you would agree, well worth keeping an eye on!

people need to organise nationally and stop the asylum Industry in its tracks . some sort of national protest movement is needed urgently
^
Welcome to 2019 DEMOCRACY, Irish style! another great article Mike Irish. KUDOS!

If we the people of Ireland had ACTUAL Journalists instead of Stenographers, who spend their day phoning the Department Of Justice and Government Ministers for what they should print, state or televise on their behalf.
Maybe then some independent journo (if such a breed still exists) could possibly be able to follow the money trail and put a halt to the flood of the undeserving and thus make available decent facilities and housing for our own people and the GENUINE, unfortunate and desperately deserving (actual) Asylum Seekers who are sadly being overlooked!.

My comments Re: the state of journalism, has absolutely no reflection on those excellent contributors HERE!
^
although , the genuine ones are few and far between . from 2001 - 2016 out of 54,000 asylum applications only 8% were deemed genuine refugees following face to face interviews with the applicants . Take a look at this and see what I mean -

http://www.thetricolour.com/Articles/183/News/politics/In-Pictures-Ireland-Asylum-Applications-2001-2017/l4520225/

Hi Charlie, Thank you for the link, which I checked out as you suggested!.

Oh My God, Frankly, I can't even pretend that I am surprised. Even IF we go mad and for sake of argument and say the current figure is at (let us say) 10% genuine asylum seekers, this means that 90% are NOT genuine!. Not only is the figure of 90% fraudulent applications, CRAZY!, it also points to some sort of criminality going on within the Asylum system.

This means that the figure for applications from 2001-16 was 54,000 asylum applications, of this figure ONLY 4,320 WERE /ARE GENUINE!

Thanks Charlie for pointing this out!

great , so we are going to house the rest of the world while our own sleep on the streets . i suppose this is the new ireland they talk about

If these people in labour like communism so much why dont they go live in North Korea ?? why do they want to bring north korea to Ireland . the first thing to go in a communist regime is your ability to change your government , the next is your right to disagree with them , the next is your standard of living , everyone ends up in poverty while their government get rich
