Efforts are also underway to assist the refugees with gathering personal documents.

A meeting of Roscommon volunteers assisting Ukrainian citizens has heard some refugees are already seeking employment locally.

It's also hoped they will attend a number of sporting events in the county this week.

At a meeting of the Roscommon Lion's branch last night the group agreed to continue to support Ukrainian refugees who arrived at the former Cuisle Resort in Donamon on Sunday.

Over 12,000 euro has been raised by the group in just seven days following bucket collections throughout the county town.

And over half of that of that funding has been used to purchase clothes, bed linen and utensils.

Last night, volunteers were informed that families were settling in well with some Ukrainians also staying in Strokestown.

It's understood a number of the refugees have already sought employment in the area with local farmers also eager to give jobs to the Ukrainian citizens.

A daily bus route is operational bringing Ukrainians to Roscommon town and it's hoped they will attend a number of community and sporting events in the coming weeks.

A major volunteer operation is now underway with both the Lion's club and Roscommon volunteer centre who are managing the Cuisle alongside the local authority appealing for help.
