It’s a numbers game – why immigration is essential for population growth over the next 40 years

The preliminary results of the 2022 census showed that the population of Ireland’s 26 counties exceeded five million people for the first time since the pre-famine census of 1841.

Doing away with our tradition of emigration and welcoming new immigrants has accounted for much of our recent growth. Our population has flattened out at three million since independence until the early 1970s. It took three decades to add another million in 2004 and reach four million people. It has now taken us less than 20 years to add another million to reach our current high. However, we will never add another million.
