Mark Finnegan is joined by Leonie Kerins Director of Doras Luimní.

Doras Luimní is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation working to support and promote the rights of all migrants, specifically those living in Limerick and the wider Mid-West region.

EU leaders recently voted unanimously on a new agreement with Turkey which would see Turkey agreeing to take back ‘illegal’ or ‘irregular migrants’ on the grounds that, for every Syrian taken back, EU countries will resettle one more Syrian national from camps in Turkey.

In a joint statement with the Irish Refugee Council ,Doras Luimní expressed concerns over the agreement and what it could mean for refugees.
