The dynamic and candid stories that you can see here are based on a multimedia project and feature piece shot by Bryan O'Brien with interviews conducted by Carl O'Brien for The Irish Times.

The multimedia video series originally posted by The Irish Times, as mentioned above and in the attribution below, features real people who share their experience of seeking asylum in Ireland. But speaking out wasn't easy. Some of the folks interviewed said in the video they were concerned about the backlash they'd receive and how it might affect their waiting time. I applaud all of them for having the courage to tell their stories.
