Chuck Feeney's Atlantic Philanthropies quietly closes its doors in Ireland after 30 years



Atlantic has been closing its global offices in recent years: the Australian office closed in 2012, Vietnam in 2013 and Northern Ireland in 2014. The Dublin office had just two staff when it closed.

“We slipped away quietly,” said Mary Sutton, Atlantic’s director for Ireland, after pulling the door behind her on the office near Fitzwilliam Square on Wednesday. The snowfall, she says, was a useful distraction.

Atlantic’s final challenge was to help wean the organisations it had helped off the Feeney donations. He wanted to give his fortune away in his own lifetime. In 2002, Atlantic decided its last cheque would be written in 2016.

One way Atlantic attempted to soften the blow of its departure was to draw government into its projects. This was to ensure Atlantic was not just creating pilots but developing approaches focusing on “lessons learned” and “outcomes rather than activities”. This was to “try and give the work we did the best chance of being embedded in governmental systems and therefore continuing into the future,” said Sutton.

Immigrant Council chief executive Brian Killoran acknowledges that Atlantic’s likes will not be seen again. His organisation must now make the case for more State funding: “How do we potentially make the argument that our services are essential?” The council has also looked at saving on costs, while the migrant crisis has brought new donors.

“We have noticed over the last couple of years that there is a new grassroots philanthropy emerging. It is not something that has died completely. It has slowed down but it is coming back,” he said.

It was really very undemocratic the way that he used money to set up Liberal projects and then get the taxpayer to take over funding them. But then, democracy is the last thing these Globalist Oligarchs want to promote.

He provides the funding for a load of those "open border" groups


for example
from annual report 2016.(immigrant council)

"The year 1 January 2016 to 31st December 2016 resulted in net surplus of €103,684. Total income amounted to €1,263,992 during the year. One of the key sources of grant income for the Immigrant Council of Ireland will cease at the end of 2017 as The Atlantic Philanthropies will complete its grant making activities in Ireland. This will lead to a loss of funding for the organization from 2018. The directors have instituted measures to secure additional funding and are reviewing all potential options to secure additional funding combined with potential cost saving measures."

They are also getting funds from the government, EU commission and Soros(open sources foundation)
Soros gave them 20 grand.
its all there on page 15 , Is I am reading the report right Chuck Feeney (Atlantic p. ) gave them 682,000 in cash in 2016(p29)
so without that they are toast.

They spent a Lot on wages they are even paying pensions. 16 employees and 600,000 in wages

https://www.immigrantcouncil.ie/sites/default/files/2017-09/ICI Signed Financial Statements for the year ended 31 Dec 16.pdf

Remember without the RTE newsroom amplifying their message on a near daily basis, these "NGO" would be far less powerful.

I wonder if every small and traditional country is allocated an Oligarch to push the Liberal Agenda and overthrow tradition. That would be how the Global Oligarchy works. It may not have all been Chuck's own money at all, but coming from a global kitty for social engineering.

People are not really aware that Chuck signed ( unwittingly) over control years ago to the fookwit moronic arseh0les that paid for the likes of the immigrant Council population replacement traitors like Killoran ,, Chuck came out of retirement to close these fookers down,, it took years to get back control from the libtard fookwits,,,

He finally did a few years ago and promptly stopped the funds to these fookers,,, that is the temerity of the guy,, he did not leave his charity like Peter Benneson (Amnesty) to be controlled by the likes of O Gorman,,, and Nazi's like Soros,, Chuck seen the new fascists and cut the fookers off,,

You gotta read up,, the fake news libtards are not telling you the whole story,,,

That's a side of the story that I've never heard before. So you think he wasn't willingly paying for gay marriage and all that crap?

The question people to ask them is what they do want in the medium term?

Nope, read his book and the radical left fascist retards usurped the board when he stepped down from the Charity and starting throwing his money at things Chuck never had any time for ,, it almost killed him to regain control of his money and stop the fascists,, but he did,,

O Gorman and Soros are the real fascist scumbags ,, Chuck just wanted the sh1t in the North to stop and threw a few million at the criminals on both sides, he never had any time for the radical left scum,, he earned his money after WWII ducking and diving from Lichtenstein to Saipan Duty Free for Japanese tourists buying knock off French Brandy ,, never a radical left fookwit ever,,

Of course the scum media do not want anyone to know this,, they would rather give O Gorman a platform to push Soros's abortion message in a referendum and O Gorman not return the bribe for doing it after it was ruled a political donation from outside the state ,,, you could not get a worse , pathetic bunch of radical left scum running the media in Ireland if you made it up,,,
