The Big Earners of the Direct Provision Asylum Industry in Ireland
The state has paid out   1.2 Billion of public money on accommodation for asylum seekers since the year 2000 .
 
The system of accommodation known as the Direct Provision system began in the year 2000 with 1 centre at the former holiday resort known as Mosney in Co Meath , and has since grown to 39 centres spread accross 19 Counties in Ireland.

At the end of June there were 7,018 asylum seekers being accommodated around Ireland , 6,082 of those in direct provision centres and 936 in emergency accommodation
  . A total of 76,547 asylum applications have been processed in Ireland between 20 Nov 2000 and 31 Dec 2016 . 
 
The annual Bill for Direct Provision has grown from  50 million in 2017 to  120 million this year with the number of asylum applications up 40% on last year .
 
The biggest earner in the Industry was Mosney Holiday plc which owns the Mosney Centre in Co Meath . It received  8.6 million from the state in 2018 and  136 million since 2002 . It is run by husband and wife Phelim and Elizabeth McCloskey who in the past have made financial donations to the Fianna Fail party . The Centre was purchased from Butlins in 1982 and operated as a popular holiday resort for Irish Families up to the summer of 2000 when it was contracted to the Department of Justice as as a Direct Provision Centre.
 
The Barlow Group which is directed and part owned by Cork-based businessman Alan Hyde received  7.5 million in public money from the state last year for providing asylum accommodation in Cork and Waterford  . In total , it has received almost  100 million from the state since it start running Direct Provision centres from seven of its properties , mostly hotels .

Mosney , Millstreet and Bridgestock Ltd have all adopted offshore ownership structures which means they don't have to disclose their accounts in Ireland making it impossible to tell how much profits the companies are making .

all these blood suckers like fazyard , bridgestock , trenthall , oceanview , peachport , ofm , maplestar , barlow , atlantic blue , bideau , james white & co , flodale , sidetracks , vesta hotels are sucking the life out of Ireland , these are the kind of companies that who would make a deal with the black and tans if they thought they could earn a few bob . They spit on Ireland . They have no shame at all sucking millions out of the irish taxpayer to accommodate people who statistics show are not even genuine refugees . The whole thing is a plantation .
^
from 1998 to 2013 inclusive Nigerians were the top nationality claiming asylum in Ireland . Nigeria is listed a 'safe country of origin' by the uk , there are no wars and on a Journey from Nigeria to Ireland you must pass at least 10 or more safe countries where you could claim asylum . Its deeply disturbing that we are opening new hotels around Ireland to accomodate people who are coming here under false pretences and even more disturbing that nobody wants to talk about this for fear of being branded the usual name calling
^
so basically we spent 1.2 billion over the past 19 years accommodating mostly Nigeria nationals even though there is no wars in that country . just wonderful . maybe they should call them Direct Plantation centres instead ?
^
sure thats mad , 1.2 Billion spent on housing asylum seekers even though there isn't even any wars in any of those places like albania , georgia or nigeria . whats going on . our homeless dying on the streets , people dying on trolleys and all this money being paid on this , feck , really shocked , dont want my taxes going to this .

i guess this is the governments way of punishing Galway for Oughterard .They are putting their foot down and saying to galway that resistance is futile , we dont care what you think , we'll put direct provision centres anywhere and everywhere we like and nobody can stop us . thats basically the message thats coming out of this move.

Nigeria is a Safe country with 6 million Tourists a year , why is the government spending all our taxes on asylum seekers , most of these people are only pretending to be refugees . We have our own bills to pay , our own mortgages , why are we paying for houses for the whole world , anyone who wants to come here we have to pay for them , its disgraceful

There's definitely a racial agenda to this , in the first 3 years of the 1990s less than 100 people a year claimed asylum in Ireland . On 1 Novemeber 1993 , The Treaty on European Union came into force . Two years later , thousands of asylum seekers started to arrive in Ireland from Nigeria . This had to be ORGANISED . Somebody was organising these people to come to Ireland . AND WHY ? thats the big question . It all goes back to the vision of a man name Richard Kalergi , a foun
