Mar 2, 2024

Ireland is building a new center to accommodate Ukrainian refugees - the 985-bed Newhall location in County Kildare.


This is reported by kildarenow.com.

It is noted that the location is located in the countryside in County Kildare between the towns of Nash and Newbridge. The facility is 90% complete and should be commissioned in March.

According to the Department for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, the Newhall Integration Center will provide accommodation for a maximum of 985 people. The contract for the center is valid for one year. The government says that residents will stay there for only a few weeks while they get used to life in Ireland and prepare to move to their independent housing.

The facility will have 387 sleeping cabins with private bathrooms to accommodate families of 2-6 people. There will also be a heated dining room, which will work in a checkerboard pattern. It is noted that meals and everything necessary for making tea and coffee will be provided taking into account cultural and religious characteristics, as well as the lunch schedule for students and employees.

The center will have separate recreation areas for adults and children. Tables and play areas for children will be set up outside. A common laundry room will be located in the center.

A team of managers, catering staff, and cleaners will monitor the operation of the facility. Security personnel will also be on-site around the clock.
