According to the 'Irish Examiner', Ireland has relocated just one minor asylum seeker from Greece  in the last year. A relocation and resettlement report from the EU Commission states that “the relocation of minors remains extremely slow. Since June 14, only six unaccompanied minors have been relocated from Greece (five to Finland and one to Ireland) bringing the total number of unaccompanied minors relocated to 29”. The number of unaccompanied children in Greece remains unclear, but it is thought that there are around 2,390 minors in temporary accommodation, waiting for resettlement.
