Traveller activist group Pavee Point says it welcomes moves to provide long-term permanent accommodation at Glenamuck Road for one of the families bereaved by the Carrickmines halting site fire in October 2015.

The group also noted that Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council is negotiating directly with the family involved.

“However, we are concerned at what will happen to this family at the end of April, as the family have been told they must leave their current temporary site at that time,” said Pavee Point director Martin Collins.

“Where will the family go in the interim? Will they be forced to leave this temporary accommodation? We urge Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to enable the family to stay at their current accommodation until permanent accommodation is made available.”

Pavee Point also called on the council to ensure that this family’s right to a proper place to live is not compromised in a statutory public consultation process due to begin this month.
