A migrant support group has cancelled plans for a multicultural event in a Church of Scientology community centre in Dublin following complaints about the arrangement.

The Say No to Direct Provision Group announced on Facebook last month it was holding a cultural talent show in September but posted five days later that the event was being postponed following multiple requests that it be moved elsewhere.

A number of supporters of the group said they would refuse to be part of an event at the Scientology centre in Finglas while others claimed the church was trying to "lure" supporters of migrant rights into handing over personal data such as emails and phone numbers.
