Over 700 refugees have begun their journey from the Calais Jungle Camp to accommodation centres across France.
Authorities are assessing the 6,500 migrants in the camp and dividing them into groups before boarding them onto buses.
Officials say registration has been going smoothly but it’s a slow process.
However many relocated migrants still intend to return to Calais and persist in their goal of reaching the UK.
That’s according to Kerry adventurer Mike O’Shea who says many of the camp’s inhabitants he spoke to don’t want to settle in France.
Mike led a humanitarian mission from Kerry to Calais last week bringing clothes, blankets and suitcases to prepare those in the camp for the move.
He says many of those he spoke to there will not give up in their goal to reach the United Kingdom.
The Beaufort native also said the prevalence of English as a second language may be a factor in the UK’s attraction for migrants.
