Govt planning to build Direct Provision centres in 13 counties

Plans are being drawn up for new Direct Provision centres with space for 5,500 asylum seekers.

The Government is promising to engage with local communities about the proposed accommodation.

So far this year, more than 3,700 people have applied for asylum in Ireland, the highest number in over a decade which has put pressure on the Government to find enough accommodation for them.

According to the Irish Times, the Department of Justice is looking for providers to operate the new Direct Provision centres.

They will be located in eight regions and cost at least €320m.


Kildare, Wicklow, Meath and Louth will be expected to house 1,200 people followed by 750 in Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, Monaghan and Sligo.

There will be accommodation for 620 people in Dublin and 617 in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon.

The department is also promising to engage with locals following recent protests against plans for Direct Provision facilities.

    Wear the Crucifix. Large ones. Post them on your front yards, in the rear windows of your cars. in the front windows of your shops, and especially directly across from the DP facilities. Large Crucifixes, the larger the better. Use the Cross to make these people know they are not welcome! Raise our Sword. Raise the Cross!

    This terrifies me because we all know are single men of a fighting age, from cultures with alien values to our own and who regard white women as whores. To me,it’s proof that the people profitting from this, government and developers, despise the indigenous Irish.

    I think direct provision is wrong because they should look after the people who are homeless. And looks all homeless living hotels. And after the people who are on minnion wage
