The D Hotel, Drogheda to house international protection applicants

    Reading on X about how one of Drogheda's largest hotels, The D Hotel, is to be used as accommodation for people seeking international protection, and some of the comments say across from that on Merchant's Quay a new direct provision centre for 500 people is scheduled.

    I am about to buy an apartment on Merchant's Quay and now I am not so sure. 1000+ people, no matter the race, in one area alone is a lot of people.

    Of course there are pros and cons, the apartment is affordable, but am now second guessing purchasing there. Any thoughts?
