44 different religious congregations have offered vacant properties to the Department of Integration to house Ukrainian refugees.
That's according to the Association of Leaders of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland, who put out the call to its members on the department's behalf.
AMRI estimates around 1,500 beds are being made available - it doesn't believe much of the accommodation needs extensive renovation.
It's believed the state is ready to spend millions on maintaining buildings.
Father Paddy Byrne of Abbeyleix in Co Laois says efforts are being made across the country to help refugees feel at home:
"There would be huge cooperation within any religious congregation.
"Make available any properties for anyone displaced from a war-torn country and coming here with a huge burden."
