Temporary village for Ukrainian refugees proposed for land in Meath


A planning application is due to be lodged with Meath County Council for an emergency temporary village with 569 detached homes, apparently for Ukrainian refugees

The site notice applicants hope to get the green light for the 33 square metre detached single storey properties on almost 16 hectares of land near the train station at Laytown.

The application by Melvin Properties Ltd and Ketut Limited intends to apply for temporary planning permission for a period of five years for the development of an emergency temporary accommodation campsite and ancillary works on lands at Ninch.

Local Fine Gael Councillor Sharon Tolan says she was “reserving judgement” on the application until she was able to study it in detail.

"I was involved in getting the site rezoned for employment use, so I would be pushing for a specific timeline on this development and not have a ‘temporary’ development for 20 years as in the case of Mosney Village.

…"Absolutely, we should be doing everything we can do to accommodate these displaced families, but the application should be given due consideration to ensure both the needs of the community and the needs of the Ukrainians are met in the right and positive way.

“People have expressed concerns on the pressure this village may have on school places and GP services and what we don’t want is to create any unnecessary segregation or divide.”

The first of many so I’d imagine. If you live in the sticks here, you really are on the edge when you consider how easily the identity and culture of your village/town can disappear.

If you let it. There are many, many unhappy.

One spark to pitchforks.

Cabinet to discuss new laws to ease immigration process

…It will also establish a one-stop-shop service around the country, where people fleeing Ukraine can get a PPSN number and income supports.

The draft bill is likely to be approved by Government in the coming weeks and will be brought through the Oireachtas before the summer recess.

Separately, the Cabinet is expected to give the green light to the legislation to remove the hospital in-patient charge of €80 per night for children aged under 16.

A memo confirming that there will be a winter influenza vaccination programme will also go before ministers.

There is also expected to be a discussion on building homes on State lands and ministers and their departments will be asked to identity more potential sites for housing.

May I propose two new metrics for any potential purchaser looking to put down roots somewhere in New-Normal-Ireland

There is a new layer to consider when appraising an area or neighbourhood, let’s call it the new-normal-spatial-complex and can be understood using the following new measures:


Potential Plantation Indicator


Actual Plantation Index

An elementary version of this would be to use the previous list of trafficking landing locations and choose wisely.

The New Normal Ghettos for All are but a crisis point away and can and will appear overnight.

It makes considering a move into the country for a single female a bit more daunting. We don’t have a second amendment, and I’ve never owned dogs.

Does this open the gate for people to now be able to build these type of homes, I wonder? An Bord pleanala and the planning depts of county councils have a lot to answer for in refusing people to build modular style homes .




Taxation Plantation - Buying up the social fabric one pledge at a time with the cotton you picked.

Citizens had been asked earlier this year to pledge vacant houses, apartments or holiday homes to accommodate arriving Ukrainian refugees, but this was stalled as people reported delays with the system.

There are currently 5,500 people housed in pledged accommodation in Ireland.

Minister for Integration Roderic O’Gorman said the offer would be for six months, and emphasised that those who pledge this accommodation would get the €800 per month recognition payment.

Nor even trying to hide it.

Well, you cant really.

"But there’s a difference between being in favour of development and being in favour of every single development, and I think it’s always the prerogative of a Councillor or a TD to objective to particular developments that they may see as inappropriate.”

Well the good folk of East Wall, Tallaght, Wicklow, Finglas, etc. also have a right to object to ‘developments’ that they may see as inappropriate. :+1:

Edit: they rightly couldn’t fcuking care less about ‘the rules of engagement’ - they can be changed you ass*ole

In January of this year the Irish government knew it was going to be spending or had access to funding of 0.5 billion euro to accommodate refugees seeking International protection. Curious they never bothered to tell anyone their plans at the time isn’t it?


Two of the major historical events that still thankfully permeate into the collective consciousness of our nation’s youth are the Famine of 1845-1847 and the plantation of Ulster in the early 17th century. Simplistically, you might say one removed Irish people thru starvation and emigration while the other inserted the seeds of a new Irish breed by way of a concentrated & politically concocted wave of migration from the British mainland. The only good fortune was that these events occurred almost two hundred and fifty years apart. While, it may sound daft to utter the words aloud, I believe we are experiencing a modern day version of both simultaneously. It seems our history and our present share one thing in common at least. Someone, somewhere is trying to solve the problem of the pesky Irish anew.

Speech by FF Leader, Micheál Martin at Dáil & Seanad Session with Michel Barnier,

Published on: 11 May 2017

We want nothing to do with a backward-looking idea of sovereignty.

We remain absolutely committed to the ideals of the European Union.

We see the Union for what it is – the most successful international organisation in world history.

And while the extremes of right and left join together to attack it, they have no credible response to the fact that every member state has secured a significant rise in living standards and a continent once defined by conflict is today defined by cooperation.
