The Government plan that will agree on the number of refugees that Ireland will take is to be signed off by the Cabinet tomorrow morning.
The Cabinet will meet at 7am tomorrow morning to hear details of the plan, which has involved various Government Departments.
A Government spokesperson said that the plan will also focus on completing the operation effectively rather than a sole fixation on the numbers.
Among the details to be outlined will be how refugees are assigned to Ireland, how they will arrive here, accommodation for them, and what supports are to be provided - such as financial and assistance with language skills.
While the Cabinet is to agree tomorrow on how the process is going to work, this will not be a final plan, and Ministers expect to have to return to the issue of refugees again in the weeks and months ahead.
The plan will also attempt to co-ordinate the responses of NGOs.
Motassem, a refugee from Southern Syria living in Ireland - has been speaking about cousin's eight-year-old daughter who was hit by an explosive device when out playing.
"He found her legs in one place, her arm in another place, and he tried to collect her pieces," he said.
"You can imagine what he was feeling. Can you imagine your daughter in that position?"
