A Letter to Roderic O'Gorman . Will you lead by example ??

 
Dear Minister Roderic O'Gorman ,

I am writing to you with regards to the new system of housing for Asylum Seekers which will be overseen by you and your Department and phased in over the next 3 years.

Writing in a recent report on the new system you say that .. "After a four month period, residents will move to accommodation within the community. Each county will be asked to accommodate applicants so that the accommodation process becomes a standard feature of Irish cities and towns . In making a home here, people seeking protection strengthen and enrich our communities"

The report goes on to say that .. "Private tenancies will be used to source accommodation for families and Rent a room schemes for single people"

Ultimately , according to the report you are in charge of the new system including its transition and its governing policy ... "Responsibility for policy lies with the Minister for Children.. The Department of Children will oversee the transition to the new model"

My question to you Minister is this :

As the person in charge of the new system will you lead by example and encourage resettlement of asylum seekers in your own constituency , places such as Castleknock and Coolmine .
 
Also it is noted that you have served on the board of management of schools in these areas such as Castleknock Community College and Coolmine and therefore understand the educational benefits these schools can offer asylum seekers .
 
Such a gesture could be followed by your Leader Eamon Ryan in his Dublin Bay South Constituency , in places like Terenure , Rathmines , and Pembroke in Dublin4 .

Will you do this Minister , will you lead by example and issue a press release encouraging a programme of resettlement of asylum seekers in your own locality of Castleknock , Coolmine etc and perhaps Eamon Ryan will follow in D4 .

Thank You and Kind Regards ,

[This letter was sent to Roderic O'Gorman on 12 March 2021 by email . Eagerly awaiting the Minister's response]

Will the minister lead by example , I doubt it , if you get a response at all it will be very vague and will put responsibility on someone else , some other body , oh its out of my hands type of thing . but the bottom line is they dont want them in their areas but everyone else has to take them
^
their excuse will be that it wouldn't be feasible because property is too expensive .

and thats the thing , the people making the policies know that their own areas will never be impacted so they can bang on about diversity all they like knowing that their own areas are safe and wont be impacted by their policies . glass houses and all
^
happy st Patrick's day to everyone . This would be great question for a live interview . If there are any journalists reading , can you put this question to the Minister during interview or indeed any other Minister who is speaking on the issue .
^
schools like Wesley College , Belvedere , Blackrock , Castle Park , Castleknock etc would be a great spot for them
^
Castleknock was suggested before as part of a prank and immediately dismissed by Councillor Ted Leddy who said there'd be no DP center going into castleknock or anywhere in D15 . But Why not . If everyone else is being forced to accept them why not in the areas of those behind the whole system ?
