45 asylum seekers are protesting in Kerry today as they allege they’ve been given 24 hours’ notice to leave their accommodation centre.

The protestors, who are all women and live in Park Lodge direct provision centre on Park Road, say they were given notice yesterday that they would be moved to other centres in Killarney and Tralee.

They claim that the International Protection Accommodation Service usually provide a weeks’ notice.

Rejoice Nkala, a Zimbabwean asylum seeker who has been in Ireland for 2 and a half years, says the women are being moved to make room for other asylum seekers and that some people will be moved into temporary beds before moving to other accomodation in Tralee.

The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth has responded to the claims saying no decisions have been made around residents in Park Lodge as yet but it must remain in consideration as part of the ongoing management of arrivals.
