The IRC have moved!

Posted On: 23 June 2014

IRC LogoMRCI LogoWe are delighted to announce that we are sharing a new office space from 7th July at 37 Dame Street, Dublin 2, with another exceptional organisation, the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland (MRCI). It’s a brilliant location in the very heart of Dublin and it is an amazing opportunity for both organisations to share our skills, expertise and experience and to work for justice and a better understanding of the realities of migration and protection in the 21st century.

IRC and MRCI will have a shared Drop in Centre (see the new opening times below) which will continue to provide information, advice and support to migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.

ENAR Ireland and Uplift will also share this space with us, making 37 Dame Street a hub for social justice and human rights activity!

The Irish Refugee Council’s main works areas will continue as usual:

~ The Independent Law Centre;

~ Specialist support for children and young people navigating the asylum system;

~ The campaign to end the Direct Provision system.

To accommodate this move we will have to close to the public from Mon 30th June to Fri 4th July inclusive. The new office for both IRC and MRCI will open on Monday 7th July 2014.
