More than 40 refugees and asylum seekers are continuing to blockade
the entrance of their accommodation in Cork by standing outside

The Kinsale Road Direct Provision Centre is located on Airport Hill,
and can house 275 people, most of whom are also protesting inside.

It started at 5am with a picket at the entrance.
The residents want faster processing of asylum applications, and
better treatment when they are in the system
