Carrickmines Family Must Not Face Eviction

Pavee Point welcomes Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council’s statement last night that it is developing long-term permanent accommodation at the Glenamuck Road for the  family bereaved by the Carrickmines fire tragedy in October 2015.

It is also to be welcomed that the County Council are negotiating directly with the family involved and it is important that this contact continues.

However, we are concerned at what will happen this family at the end of April as the family have been told they must leave their current temporary site at that time. “Where will the family go in the interim?  Will they be forced to leave this temporary accommodation?,” asks Martin Collins, Pavee Point Director.

“We urge Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to enable the family to stay at their current accommodation until permanent accommodation is made available,” said Mr. Collins.

We also call on  Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County 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 in early April.
