Share this article


Contractors in charge of a Direct Provision centre in Clare are to apologise to a resident who claimed her sick child was denied food because the canteen was closed for the night.

In a post on Facebook, the woman, who has been living at the facility at Knocknalisheen for a number of years, says staff refused to give her just one slice of bread, despite her son having a tummy bug.

According to the Irish Examiner, the Department of Justice has launched an investigation into the matter and says that the contractor has 'acknowledged responsibility' and that staff will be re-trained.
