Ireland (from the Irish Eire “state”) is the third largest island in Europe (after Great Britain and Iceland) and the 20th largest island in the world. The island is divided by the state border between the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland).
80% of the island is occupied by the state of the Republic of Ireland. In the north-east of the island is Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Throughout most of Ireland’s history, Cork and Galway have been the most populous areas. Today the picture has changed significantly.
Dublin is home to more than 25% of the total population of the Republic of Ireland – 1.1 million people. The second most populous city is Belfast 600 thousand people and Cork 200 thousand people. People leave the central regions of the country and move to big cities, and city dwellers move to England. In Northern Ireland, the situation is similar, everything is moving closer to England.
How the population has changed over the entire period
As we can see, over the entire period, only the east coast remained in positive territory in terms of population change. Why do you think this is happening?
