Protesters and supporters of a demonstration organised by Doras Luimní and the Foynes Asylum Seekers for Change in Limerick this afternoon.
It follows the recent removal and transfer of several asylum seekers from the Mount Trenchard Direct Provision centre in Limerick – to another direct provision centre in Cork – after they held a protest there to highlight the conditions at the centre, and the length of time they have been in the direct provision system.
The removed asylum seekers were escorted by armed Gardaí.
