Listen Back: Kfm Speaks To Protestors At Floods Cross In Newhall

It comes as the High Court granted an Injunction to protect the site amidst demonstrations.

One woman protestor at the site, who identified herself as Denise, said if Ukrainian women and children arrive at the site, she would help them carry their bags in.

She said  "we are not racist” and that they feel like “the Government is lying to us”.

When told that the Department of Integration has confirmed that over 300 Ukrainian "families" will be provided with temporary accommodation at the site, she said people “don’t believe the Government”.

She said she doesn’t trust the Government and that she believes services in the local community are overstretched.

Kfm told her that, according to the Department of Integration, a medical facility will operate on the site. She said “will Irish people be able to use it?”

She said locals are struggling to get a doctor’s appointment and that she believes housing refugees will put further strain on services.
