Photos from the protest outside the old Bargaintown building on North Rd in Finglas today over the plans to accommodate 222 asylum seekers at the property.

Between 150 and 200 members of the community attended the protest.

Though the asylum seekers have been bussed out, concerns were raised that they’d be moved back in at some point. It is believed they are staying at City West Hotel currently.

The protesters also want any plans to accommodate asylum seekers at the old Haribo factory on McKee Ave to be scrapped.

Two members of the National Party spoke to the crowd.

But who knew so many were listening in
Albania and Georgia??

Well, at least they’re sorted for beds. :slight_smile:

Apparently this was a HSE injection centre which they magicked into accommodation by turning the privacy cubicles into sleeping pods. I’m also hearing the closure ultimately came via the Fire Officer and not due to attacks by locals…
