The Government has identified 26 locations to house thousands of incoming refugees, Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald has confirmed.

Ireland has committed to house 4,000 refugees over the next two years in response to the crisis in Syria.

Ms Fitzgerald said 90 parcels of land were identified as potential sites across the country but only 26 have been deemed suitable by the department.

The refugees will be accommodated in: Killarney, Kilkenny, Carlow, Cavan, Monaghan, Carrickmacross, Carrick-on-Shannon, Roscommon, Sligo, Ballina, Castlebar, Ennis, Limerick, Cork, Tralee, Thurles, Portlaoise, Tullamore, Waterford, Naas, Arklow and Mullingar – and in the four Dublin local authority areas.
