Refugees will be allowed to work in Ireland and number will rise as they reunite with families

The Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton says their applications for asylum will be fast-tracked by a new agency to be set up as part of a range of measures announced today.

The first groups of between 50 and 100 refugees will begin to arrive within weeks.

Minister Burton says they will be processed as soon as possible.

She said: “The intention is to have a process that will be fast-tracked. We will expect that a lot ofpeople will be in a position to find work.

“To do that, obviously you need English langiage skills, but you also need to be in a position to work, and the people in this case will be once the reception and orientation process is completed.”
