From its humble days when one of Ireland’s biggest exports was its people, the past century saw Ireland’s fortunes change when economic prosperity brought impressive economic development in the country. This attracted people from across the world seeking opportunities in Ireland. Despite the country suffering from the economic financial crisis of 2008-9, the country generally has recovered. Today, much of the immigrants in Ireland come from other member EU states but also from beyond that. See a short top 10 (by population) of the largest expatriates living in Ireland.
FUN FACT: The entire top 10 minus one country are European countries – can you guess which countries?
