AbstractThe number of people applying for asylum in Ireland has been increasing steadily
since the start of the 1990s, from 39 applications in 1992 to 10,938 in 2000.
It is only over the past 2 years, however, that the number of unaccompanied
minors seeking asylum in the country has shown any considerable increase. In
1999, 34 unaccompanied minors applied for asylum: there were 300
applications in 2000, while the number of applications received reached 425 in
the first 7 months of 2001.
