Ireland

Migration to Ireland has been particularly hard hit by the severe economic crisis touching the country. Between 2007 and 2010, net migration fell from 1.6% to –0.8% of total population. Irish employment and immigration levels reached peaks at the last trimester of 2007. Two years later, the country had lost 253 000 jobs, a decline of 12%. As a result, migrant inflows to Ireland decreased sharply from 110 000 in the year to April 2007 (FY 2007) to 31 000 in FY 2010.
