Statement by Merchants Quay Ireland on planning decision by Dublin City Council

Statement by Merchants Quay Ireland on request for further information by Dublin City Council


Merchants Quay Ireland have received the request for further information from Dublin City Council regarding the Medically Supervised Injecting Facility (MSIF).

We will be responding to the issues and concerns raised as part of the planning process.

In Ireland, two people a day die from a drug-related cause. International evidence shows that MSIFs reduce public injecting, reduce drug litter, and most importantly, save lives.

We are disappointed that the opening of the MISF has been further delayed, preventing vulnerable people from accessing the support that can keep them alive.

We are committed to working with the relevant authorities to ensure that this vital service opens as soon as possible.
