As many as 100 people are to arrive there following arriving into Ireland from the war torn country.

The Cuisle Accessible Holiday and Respite Care Resort in Donamon in County Roscommon has taken in 41 women and children from Ukraine overnight.

Over the next couple of days that is due to rise to over 100 at the Roscommon facility.

The resort, which used to be a centre for many organisations including the Irish Wheelchair Association, was closed in 2019 and has not been used since.

However, the work of the local community with support from Roscommon County Council and the Lions Club has made the centre ready with volunteers working throughout the day yesterday to finish preparations.

Co-ordinator Adrian Leddy confirmed to Shannonside Northern Sound news that 41 women and children arrived last night to the former holiday resort.
