Ireland's direct provision system will end in 2024, after being in operation for over 20 years.

In a new report, the Department of Equality says all existing centres will close on a phased basis over the next four years.

Under a new system, asylum-seekers will stay in a reception centre for less than four months, before being housed in the community.

The Irish Refugee Council has welcomed the announcement, says it's been calling for an end to Direct Provision since 2001.
