Connemara Galway Hotel
Pat McGrath, of RTÉ News, reports:
A tender to provide a direct provision centre at a hotel in Oughterard, Co Galway, has been withdrawn by the applicant.
Speculation that the former Connemara Gateway Hotel was to be repurposed as a centre to house asylum seekers has led to a round-the-clock protest by locals in recent weeks.
Following discussions with protesters, construction workers are entering the site this morning and removing tools from the hotel.
