The update has emerged this evening

Kfm understands that a contract has now been signed between the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and Pastures New Ltd. for a Ukrainian refugee arrival centre to be constructed at Flood's Cross in Newhall, Naas. 

Earlier today, we reported that it was Kildare County Council's view that a contract had not yet been signed.

The Council is reported to have engaged solicitors, who are believed to have issued pre-litigation letters to the landowner and developer.

However, sources have now told Kfm that a contract has been signed and work at the site will continue. 

It's estimated that up to 950 Ukrainian refugees will be accommodated at the facility, once complete.
