Press Statement Census of Population 2022 - Preliminary Results - CSO - Central Statistics Office



So, officially migration into Ireland is running at about 38,000 per annum. Unofficially, we can see with our eyes and ears it must be more like double that.

Post 2016 election, where there wasn’t a peep out of the democrats of FG and FF, Coveney decided to inform us that the rag tag coalition arrangement FG formed for 5 years with FF would set out on the road to Ireland 2040 and growing the population by 1million, at least half of whom would be fresh migrants.

Starting from 2016, at this current official run rate of 38,000 per annum, even the target in Coveney’s decree will have been surpassed by 2030, let alone 2040.

Once the terms of Coveney’s decree have been met, will a halt be called to Plantation 2040 plans, not bloody likely if FF’s exchange in the Dail yesterday is anything to go by.
