An Bord Pleanála decision to grant planning permission for a Medically Supervised Injecting Facility (MSIF)
Merchants Quay Ireland welcomes the decision to grant planning permission for a Medically Supervised Injecting Facility (MSIF) at our Riverbank Centre on Merchant’s Quay.
The MSIF will allow us to reach people who are currently isolated and vulnerable, offering them vital healthcare and treatment options. With one death every day in Ireland from a drug overdose, this facility will save lives.
We understand that there are concerns from members of the local community, and we will work closely with them and all stakeholders as the project progresses to ensure that this facility benefits everyone.
MQI would also like to place on record our thanks to the Minister for Health Simon Harris, Minister Catherine Byrne and their officials for their support for this 18-month pilot.
