Ireland has offered to take in up to 25 migrants on board a rescue ship that's stranded off the coast of Malta.
The MV Lifeline has been turned away from several ports in the Mediterranean and is carrying 234 migrants.
The Maltese government has agreed to allow the boat to dock, after several countries including Ireland agreed to house the refugees.
