Dublin and the west coast continue to welcome the most Ukrainian refugees according to the latest figures from the CSO.
The statistic office said nearly 39,000 Ukrainians have now arrived in Ireland – with nearly 3,000 arriving in the last two weeks.
As of June 19th, some 38,700 people had fled to Ireland from the war-torn country.
Women aged over 20 accounted for 47% of the arrivals, while people under the age of 19 made up 37%.
As of June 7th, 6,890 of the Ukrainian children had been enrolled in Irish schools. Some 71% in primary school and 29% in secondary.
The CSO is able to determine where 91% of the new arrivals are located based on their interaction with local services.
North inner city Dublin has welcomed the most refugees of any local electoral area at 1,245.
Ennistimon in County Clare has welcomed the second highest amount at 1,194.
There is a marked difference between the two when it comes to calculated the concentration of new arrivals – with Ukrainians now making up 7.28% of the population of Ennistymon and 1.96% of the population of north inner city Dublin.
