Asylum seekers in Ireland
40% of asylum seekers living in Direct Provision have been waiting 5 years or more for a final decision to be reached on their claim for protection. JRS Ireland is working to secure durable solutions for these asylum seekers and their families. Miriam Gormally spoke with David Moriarity, policy and advocacy officer with JRS, about how things need to be changed. She began by asking him if it was particularly hard to be an asylum seeker around family festive times like Easter.
