Tensions High in Offaly as Asylum Applications reach 16 year high

Tensions High in Offaly as Asylum Applications reach 16 year high
The Marian Hostel in Tullamore, Co. Offaly to open as direct provision centre for asylum seekers
Figures from the Department of Justice show Asylum applications at a 16 year high with some 4,700 asylum applications in 2019.The top 5 Countries of Origin for Asylum Seekers entering Ireland were Albania , Georgia , Zimbabwe , Nigeria and South Africa with most asylum seekers arriving at Dublin Airport . 

Last Tuesday , The Department of Justice announced it is opening a Direct Provision centre at the former Marian Hostel in Tullamore, Co. Offaly .

The centre will accommodate 168 asylum seekers with the first arrivals expected in the coming weeks . 

The new centre follows a recent government tender process in Rural Ireland for Asylum Accommodation with 3 New centres since opened in Borrisokane Co Tipperary (comprising 16 homes: 3 town houses and 13 apartments) ,  B
allinamore Co Leitrim (comprising 25 newly refurbished apartments) and Clare Lodge in Ennis (comprising a newly refurbished Hotel accommodating 64 single people) . 

The Tullamore centre will be run by Bridgestock Ltd which runs centres in Ballyhaunis Co Mayo , Sligo Town and Clare Lodge in Ennis . It is owned by Tullamore Businessman Seamus Gillen and Galway property owner Eoghan McGinty. The company is held by an offshore firm in the British Virgin Islands which means their accounts and profits are not disclosed in Ireland .

The Department of Justice said the Tullamore centre will provide Residents with "Independent Living A
rrangements" including their own cooking facilities and onsite Food Hall . 
 
The new centre will provide residents with ‘independent living’ where they will have their own cooking facilities and an onsite food hall where they can get their groceries. This is in addition to the weekly cash allowance residents receive (€38.80 for adults and €29.80 for children), which they can spend wherever they choose. Applicants can also access a range of State services and supports including healthcare, education, childcare etc, on the same basis as everyone else. 

In advance of the centre opening  , A "Friends of the Centre" group is to be established to assist in building a richer multicultural community in Offaly and the department is to meet with local officials to discuss what supports will be in place to facilitate the new accommodation centre and its residents.

Many Locals have voiced their opposition to the centre with a public protest planned in the Town for Saturday 29th February . 

Offaly Councillor John Leahy said that public resources in the town are already oversubscribed ..
 
There is a shortage of medical care in the county and if you want to see a doctor you will have to wait a couple of days ,what happens here is that migrants and refugees come and they will be allocated a doctor regardless if a doctor is at full capacity .Then, from a housing point of view, if someone came to me and said 'my daughter is on a housing waiting list for the last eight years, will someone from this Direct Provision centre get a house before my daughter?' I would have to say yes .

WHY CANT WE DO IT- BECAUSE " THEY " Don't ,won't care ffs.
DIRECT PROVISION IS SET UP BY TAXPAYERS MONEY. WE,
OWN THE LAND AND ALL ASSETS. IT IS OURS,NOT THE GOVTS
Are you still waiting for them,decades later.They do not care for the
IRISH HOMELESS AND NEVER HAD,WILL BY ANY FFGG GOVT.
Do you really WANT TO KNOW HOW TO HELP THE HOMELESS ?
ORGANISE COMMUNITIES AND TAKE OVER THE CENTRES,PUT
THE HOMELESS INSIDE THEM, IT IS THEIRS TOO, F.UK THE
DAIL PARASITES,ABSENTEE LANDLORDS AND TRAITORS.too
hard to do ? LOOK WHAT "THEY DID" IN 1847,and decades since.
^
show me the money . Friends of DP centres are people who benefit financially from the Industry . Their business is servicing the needs of residents and they are PAID a lot of money by the state for doing this . They are business people who see an opportunity to make a lot of money at other people's expense . dont be fooled , they are not ordinary local people , they are gravy trainers
^
the DOJ says it has obtained an extra 650 hotel beds for asylum seekers to social distance. Why cant they do this for rough sleepers on the streets ? 50% of asylum seekers here are Single people , they are automatically entitled to accommodation but Single people who are NOT asylum seekers and who are homeless get NOTHING , no accommodation entitlements . ALSO , their own stats show that most asylum seekers come from SAFE countries so its not like they are fleeing anything yet they get better treatment then irish people .

D P IS DIRECT PLANTATION BEING SOLD AS DIRECT PROVISION,
THAT IS THE ONLY WAY THE 2040 REPLANTATION / GENOCIDE OF
THE IRISH RACE CAN BE ACHIEVED.It is GENOCIDE under UN LAW,
which is supported by the EU and DAIL,...FACT...CHECK IT. THAT 
MEANS ITS ILLEGAL AND ALL CRIME COMMITTED BY THESE
REPLANTERS,INCLUDING ASSULT,RAPE AND MURDER IS BLOOD
ON THE HANDS OF SAME UN-EU-AND DAIL.HOW DO THEY GET
AWAY WITH IT,THEY MAKE AND CONTROL THE LAWS THEY BREAK
....BECAUSE NOBODY CHALLANGES THEM IN COURT,...WHY ?...
Because it's A GLOBALIST MACHINE THAT IS BACKED BY ELITE,
BANKERS,GOVTS,COMMUNISM,ISLAM,NGO,FARLEFT,NEOLIBERAL
PARASITES ETC. ASK YOURSELF WHY IS ALL THIS "FREELIVING "
Being taken up by FOREIGNERS FROM OVER 200 COUNTRIES ?
WHY IS IT BEING "OFFERED FOR FREE " ?......BECAUSE IF IT WAS
NOT FOR FREE THEN THE 2040 REPLANTATION TARGET WOULD
FAIL, FAIL FAIL....BUT THEY CANNOT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN,
THEY DONT NEED YOU OR YOUR APPROVAL, YOUR BEING....
REPLACED, WIPED OUT. WHAT SCARES THEM IS FREE SPEECH,
BUT THEY PLAN TO BAN THAT TOO. OH, THE TRAITORS CALL
THIS RACIST COMMENTS-FAR RIGHT,POPULIST, well FU.K THEM
BRING BACK " GUILTY OF TREASON " AND PUNISHABLE BY LAW,
SEE HOW BRAVE TURNCOAT-TRAITORS ARE THEN TO SELL YOU,
FU.KING SCUM OF THE EARTH. LOOK AROUND PEOPLE...LOOK

4 GREEN FIELDS," AND EACH ONE WAS A JEWEL " written and sung
by OUR OWN GREAT TOMMY MAKEM,R.I.P. When I look at the last
1000 years of Irish history,to the the present day,THIS SONG ALONE
would fit the narrative of the struggle,hardship and adversity IRISH
GENERATIONS have endured,OVERCOME BY IRISH TENACITY.
THE SPIRIT MAY WEAKEN,BUT WILL NEVER BE BROKEN....
" AND STRANGERS CAME AND TRIED TO TAKE THEM FROM ME "
well that is SO RELEVANT TO TODAYS DIRECT PROVISION LIES
With respect,PLAY AND LISTEN,and then THANK OUR ANCESTORS
FOR THE HERITAGE,LEGACY AND PATRIOTIC BLOOD IN US

i feel so sorry for people in tullamore , great people but being taken advantage of by greedy NGOs . A lot of people making millions out of the Direct Provision Industry . Like others have said , the stats show that most asylum seekers come from safe countries , wouldn't Hurt so much if you thought you were helping Genuine refugees , sadly we know this isn't the case and again my apologies to the people of tullamore .
^
in the year 1999 , there was Zero DP centres in Zero counties , twenty years on and 42 DP centres in 19 Counties . This is Big Money Industry for friends of FF and FG . It has to stop . we need to say End Direct provision now
^
Every Town,Village and Community affected by DIRECT PROVISION 
should combine and FILE A CLASS ACTION FOR COMPENSATION,
yes it is TAXPAYERS MONEY but it will expose the ILLEGAL TAX
DODGERS/HAVENS involved and they are locked into contract, make it more expensive for them to operate.These are COMMUNITY ASSETS
that was paid for by OUR PEOPLE,compensation is just because it
Effects business and tourism.Seeing that the homeless is barred from
direct provision it's an added insult that THESE ILLEGAL PARASITES
are also put into Govt. Housing(cheap rental) again ahead of LEGITIMATE IRISH CITIZENS...ALL BECAUSE OF GREEDY PIGS
take it to the highest courts in Ireland,Europe and International Human
Rights Court,the INTERNATIONAL MEDIA WILL BE ALL OVER IT
and the rte(Radicalised Truth Evaders) will be exposed also F..K THEM
even if the case was lost,I find it difficult to believe,the cost will be low
because it is a SHARED CLASS ACTION.BLOW THE ROOF OFF THIS
COMPENSATION SHOULD DEMAND €BILLIONS,ALL LEGITIMATE
I PERSONALLY WOULD WITHDRAW LABOR AND SERVICES TO
THE GREEDY CROOKS/LANDLORDS OPERATING THESE SCAMS
OR CHARGE THEM 10 TIMES THE RATE FOR EVERYTHING, It will
blow a hole in their pocket. BUT I PREFER BOYCOTT,BOYCOTT ALL 
^
ivaus , good points . I think tourism will be hit badly especially when all the hotels and guest houses are now occupied by asylum seekers . A lot of these small towns would benefit greatly from tourism and we've missed an opportunity to turn these places into tourist destinations
^
so asylum applications are at 16 year high and most are coming from safe countries . yet we are spending a fortune on accommodation and bending over backwards to please them , our own homeless are left to die in the cold and sleep on the streets , its a disgrace whats happening in this country . shame on our politicians
