A group of Ukrainian refugees who were being housed in Monaghan's Civil Defence building have been rehoused in local hotels, while two families have moved into pledged vacant houses.
The update was provided to councillors at a recent Monaghan County Council meeting.
On the 3rd of April, a group of 40 Ukrainian refugees were sent to Co Monaghan by the International Protection Accommodation Service.
The group has travelled to Ireland via Poland, and were made up young children and single men and women.
They spent ten days in the Civil Defence building, where the HSE, social welfare office, and gardaí ensured their immediate physical, medical, safety, and welfare needs were met.
A number of support agencies also provided toys and clothes to make the group feel welcome.
On the 12th of April, the group moved to temporary emergency accommodation in local hotels, and two families currently reside locally in pledged vacant houses.
Of the original group of 40, 17 have moved to other counties and six new people have joined family members of that original group in Monaghan.
The CMETB has organised English language classes to commence this week, and five children are attending St Joseph's National School, Knockatallon and two students will attend Beech Hill College this week.
In addition to those who have arrived through the IPAS system, a further 60 have come through other services and have come to be with family and friends in the area.
Monaghan County Council has also established a multi-agency Community Response Forum to provide a coordinated response and the forum has meet twice to date.
