Council officials are to meet with residents of Carrickmines this morning who have objected to survivors of a fatal fire moving into their neighbourhood.
The group used their cars yesterday to block 15 members of the traveller community from accessing temporary accommodation on Rockville Drive in South Dublin.
The families lost their homes when a blaze tore through their halting site on nearby Glenamuck Road on Saturday, leaving 10 of their relatives dead.
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council donated land for temporary accommodation while a permanent site is built, but locals have said the solution is not good enough.
Geraldine Dunne from the Southside Travellers Action Group has said the families want to move in. “They have just said that they would be happy with what was offered for now to go into that location,” Ms Dunne said.
“That would hopefully provide at this present time… a place where they can say it is a home for now and gather together without having to go through hotels and B&B’s.”
