The Great Famine (1845-1852) was one of the most devastating periods in Irish history. Growth in recent years has been made possible mainly by two factors: a positive demographic balance and the contribution of immigration.
For the first time since the Great Famine on the island in the nineteenth century, the Irish population has exceeded 5 million. This was announced by the National Institute of Statistics (Cso) and the target was achieved last April.
To get a comparable number, we need to go back to the 1851 census, which had a population of 5.11 million.
Only the population of the current Republic of Ireland is included in the calculation. The island as a whole, along with Northern Ireland (part of the United Kingdom), had a population of 6.6 million in 1851, and today stands at 6.9 million. According to some analysts, the new merger of the two Irish girls into a single state independent of Great Britain cannot be ruled out, as Scotland (in addition to Northern Ireland) could be lost as it is in Edinburgh for separation from London.
The Great Famine, also known as the Great Famine (1845-1852), was one of the most devastating periods in Irish history. In 1840, the island’s population exceeded 8 million, and a number of factors, including the population and the pathology that could destroy potato crops, plunged the country (then an integral part of the United Kingdom), killing one million Irish immigrants abroad.
The population of the Republic continued to decline for a good part of the twentieth century through immigration, especially to Great Britain and the United States. Achieving growth in recent years is possible by two main factors: a positive demographic balance and the contribution of immigration.
