Preparations are underway to welcome 4,000 refugees to Ireland in the coming weeks and months.
So far, thousands of people have offered beds and other forms of housing in a variety of campaigns through charities and social media groups.
The Irish Red Cross has been tasked with co-ordinating the effort and is urging anyone who would like to offer accommodation places for refugees to get in contact with them directly.
They have set up a dedicated phone-line: 01 6424 600 and email: MigrationCrisis@redcross.ie
It comes as police on the Greek Island of Lesbos last night said more than 22,000 refugees have been registered there this week alone.
