Hatch Hall, Lower Hatch Street Dublin 2
“The Direct Provision Centre Hatch Hall, which is situated in Dublin city centre, will close next month.
“The Department of Justice says it is due to circumstances beyond the control of the Reception and Integration Agency (RIA).”
According to the Reception and Integration Agency, as of October 28, 2018, 223 people were living in Hatch Hall.
Oireachtas #DirectProvision hearings are remarkable. One company, Bridgestock, is paid about €6m/year to run two centres. About €100m since 2000. But majority shares transferred to a company offshored in the British Virgin Islands, so no public scrutiny of accounts or profits.
