Over 14,600 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in Ireland since the Russian invasion began.

Over 8,000 have sought accommodation from the state, with the rest staying with family and friends.

It comes as the Irish Times reports tents, prefabs and emergency dormitory-style units will have to be used to house refugees within weeks.

The cabinet was told emergency accommodation in hotels, bed and breakfasts, and private houses will be used up by then if the current number of arrivals continues.

The Defence Forces are building tented accommodation at Gormanstown in Meath while government officials are also looking at modular housing.

Peace talks

Meanwhile, Ukraine's President says he can't trust Russia's latest promise to scale back its military operations from two cities.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy says he'll wait for concrete results instead after some progress was made in peace talks yesterday.

Western officials believe Moscow plans to intensify its offensive in other parts of the country.
