Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan has asked the management of the Knockalisheen Direct Provision Centre for a report on the incident which hasn’t yet been forthcoming.The owners of the Rollerjam centre hosted the private party for the children today with food and drinks provided, and donations of Christmas gifts, toys and food donated by members of the public.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WhatsApp Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Missing you this Christmas 1 of 3 TAGSCharlie FlanaganChristmascommon roomDirect provisionfoodgiftsKnockalisheenlimerickpresentsRollerJam Delicious Wiltshire Farm Foods brightening your days in Autumn Email Kevin Chitdze from Malawi and Ashton Vuma from South Africa with their Christmas gifts.Photo: Oisin McHugh last_img
