After Hours>Incident at Roscommon hotel (asylum seekers)
Ultimate Seduction 23:29 11-02-2019 (1 Thanks)
Breaking on twitter. Guards have building and surrounding area sealed off as crime scene. Fire brigade there too but no fire. Googled the hotel because its disused, but its home to a load of asylum seekers.

Any news?

That's a fierce unlucky place by the sound of it. Asylum seekers would be taking their lives into their hands moving in there...

The insurance angle might be worth looking at.

It's a shame really.
It was a lovely hotel.
The food was good and a beautiful location on the Shannon.

The US could drop a few MOABs on Roscommon and it'd be no loss to the country.

Pretty shítty carry-on from those responsible. Can’t see past the end of their own nose.

Whatever their views, which they are entitled to, setting fire to a building is utterly scummy. The explanation is not an excuse. The emergency services, which probably have to bring reinforcements on board from a larger town, are tied up by it - hopefully there isn't another such serious incident occurring at the same time. There are residences and businesses nearby, smoke damage, scorched ground, high financial costs. Defending your town by setting fire to a building is a hell of a twisting of logic.

What reason do they have for not wanting asylum seekers?

The hotel is in Leitrim but the bigger part of the town/village is in Roscommon.
The Shannon is the boundary.
