The public are in a state of disbelief at government plans to phase out Direct Provision and house all illegal migrants in Ireland within months of them illegally entering the country as thousands of Irish citizens remain homeless and tens of thousands languish on housing waiting lists.
While the government refuses to act to prevent international finance from exploiting the country with vulture and coocoo funds buying up Irish homes en masse, they also plan to house thousands of people living in Direct Provision despite most of the asylum claims being bogus.
Recently, revelations that foreign investment funds buying Irish homes outbid public housing bodies “on more than 400 homes” in the last 4 weeks.
Last month almost all the residential homes at a development in Maynooth, Co Kildare and another 112 new builds are a housing development in Dublin were bought outright by a foreign investment fund.
