This threatens that they will not have the places where to sleep. Roderic O’Gorman, the country’s Minister for Children and Youth, told RTÉ radio that the government had warned the Ukrainian embassy about this situation.
Roderic O’Gorman also noted that Dublin cannot guarantee that it will accept all Ukrainian refugees and asylum seekers next week.
According to RTÉ’s website, there are currently 42,000 Ukrainians and 16,000 asylum seekers living in Ireland.
Applicants for international protection are also denied housing, but there is no data on how many of them have already been told that there is no housing for them.
Martin Heydon, Minister of State for the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine Affairs, said the government “cannot guarantee” a bed for every refugee arriving in Ireland.
Mr. Heydon said the Irish government and society had worked hard to cope with the scale of the crisis and the arrival of Ukrainian refugees.
