The Polish ambassador to Ireland says there will come a point where her country will not be able to handle larger numbers of refugees.
Anna Sochańska was speaking as 1.8 million people have arrived into Poland from neighbouring Ukraine, following Russia's invasion.
Ambassador Sochańska told Pat Kenny that they were prepared for this.
"We expected that we would have a very big influx of refugees, and in fact we were prepared for that.
"The Polish government has introduced a very, very swift system of taking care of all those refugees as soon as they reach the border.
"Providing them with food, clothes, SIM cards, necessary medical aid - and then providing buses and trains free of charge to take them quickly away from the border.
"We have 39 reception centres, we have about 150 information centres.
"It's not only the government or local government, but these are just ordinary people coming and trying to help all those poor people."
'Grateful for any assistance'
However, she says there will come a point where Poland will not be able to cope.
"At one point, we will not be able to deal with - let's say - three million refugees, so we think that such countries as Ireland could invite some of them.
"At the moment, what we need is your assistance in helping, especially disabled children, and people wounded during the bombardments of different places in Ukraine.
"So there are needs, and we would be grateful for any assistance".
Asked if Poland is looking for extra medical staff to cope, Ambassador Sochańska says it more about moving people.
"We have skilled doctors in Poland - but as I said, our capacity in terms of absorbing people, having beds in hospitals they will soon come to end.
"So I suppose we would rather think about sending people to different European countries".
Around 6,000 Ukrainian refugees have been welcomed in Ireland so far, with Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney saying as many as 20,000 could arrive in the coming weeks.
