Asylum kids blossom in peaceful study
A homework club set up in an asylum centre to help children living in direct provision has seen the young students blossom.
The club, which opened at the Eglington Direct Provision Centre in Galway last September, has given children - who typically live in one room with their mother, father, and any siblings - a chance to study in peace. It's also given the youngsters a chance to master their new language.
Marie Lydon, the former principal of Taylor's Hill primary school, helped set up the club, which helps 25 children.
