    Default Houses for Refugees ? .. . Sleeping Bags for native homeless.


    as seen on Grafton Street today


    The Government has identified 26 locations that will house the 4,000 refugees Ireland has agreed to take in.

    Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald said that 90 areas were identified as potential sites, with just 26 being deemed suitable by the department.

    So far 129 refugees have arrived here this year from Lebanon and Jordan, with a further 62 from Syria due to arrive before the end of the year.

    The minister has met with a number of different departments to prepare for the arrival of thousands of refugees.

    When the refugees arrive they will stay at a reception centre for eight to ten weeks where they will learn some basic English and skills such as how to use euros before being moved to their permanent homes.

    Where did anyone suggest that this government has any houses for refugees? Every report I've read says the will be put in to yet more direct provision hell holes.

    Simple thing to do to get more housing is to vote for a government that will build them, instead of giving tax cuts to the rich.

    I'll blame the people that vote that way.

    There is no mention of anyone getting a house - because of course, they are not.

    Of course, the non-native homeless are in sleeping bags too, and the Hedge funds are getting the homes.

    So you know who is going to get a house in every local authority in Ireland and who is not?

    Why would they...... they need me on the canvass


    and... I believe that everyone should be treated equally.... everyone who qualifies should be given social housing ...... Irish people should not get preference over refugees....... and REFUGEES SHOULD NOT GET PREFERENCE OVER IRISH PEOPLE.........anything wrong with that??????

    Ah yes... you remember the last government responsible for a housing surplus? I don't think they're particularly well liked around here.
