This week Hollywood Developments started work at Balseskin Refugee Reception Centre in Finglas, North Dublin, to double the capacity of asylum seekers from 350 to 700 residents, as Ireland flings opens its doors to all comers from Africa and Asia. The centre is a fully catered reception facility where all meals etc. are provided and all the needs of so called refugees are taken care of. They can come and go as they please and are provided free transport to Mosque, town, Post Office to collect their benefits, doctors, hospital, etc. etc. Some have even flown off to Europe on holiday for a week!
The current basketball park is being ripped up and the current medical centre will be temporarily moved to the car park as new double story accommodations will be constructed in their place, adding another four blocks to the existing four.
The land and facility is owned by a Canadian company with oil mining interests called East Coast Catering, and while one of the four directors is a wealthy architect from Cork, his services are not needed, as planning permission is not required for extensions or improvements to buildings which house refugees. It seems “Health and Safety” issues are not important for refugees, or does this just highlight what a money making scam “Health and Safety” is for normal people who want to build or improve their own homes?
Despite regular complaints of nepotism and corruption, etc. at Balseskin and attempts to close it down a decade ago, it appears Justice Department is happy with the goings on there and are now doubling down and pouring a few more million in.
Ireland’s Department of Justice have been openly bragging that Ireland’s Asylum System is more liberal than Sweden or Germany and it appears the word is getting out. Having long since ceased all deportations and continuing to give full benefits to failed asylum seekers and even those with deportation orders, Ireland does not even check to see if those with deportation orders have left!
