The Latest CSO population and Migration estimates up to April 2018 have been released.

From the Figures, we can see that the population of Ireland has increased by a further 64,500 people. This can be attributed to our NetFlow of Immigration (those entering the country) increasing whilst our NetFlow of emigration (those leaving the country) decreasing.

According to the CSO stats, the number of non-Irish nationals entering the state increased by 30,900, 34.2% The CSO state that today in Ireland the total number of non-Irish nationals stands at 593,600, or 12.2% of the population.


The CSO Statistics as previously mentioned stated that the number of non-Irish nationals entering the state increased by 30,900, 34.2%, the total number of non-Irish nationals in Ireland now stands at 593,600, or 12.2% of the population.

In the last census, (2016) the figure for those living in Ireland but born outside of the country stood at 810,406



Today with the new CSO figures for 2018 and 2017 we can calculate a rough figure for the number of non-native Irish now living in Ireland.

CSO 2017 stats
57,200 non-Irish migrated to Ireland
34,000 non-Irish left Ireland

Difference = Net Gain of 23,200 Non-Irish

CSO 2018 stats
62,000 non-Irish migrated to Ireland
28,000 non-Irish left Ireland

Difference = Net Gain of 34,000 Non-Irish

Total new Non-Irish Citizens in Ireland since 2016 Census = 57,200


CSO stats state;
The total number of non-Irish nationals in Ireland now stands at 593,600, or 12.2% of the population.

If we add this Net Gain of Non-Irish since the 2016 Census to the 810,406 figure from the 2016 Census we now have a total population of Non-ethnic Irish at 867,606

The total Irish population according to current CSO stats is showing at 4,857,000

867,606 non-ethnic Irish calculates to roughly 17.87 % of the population now being non-ethnic Irish.


We can also look at the figure of 867,606. If the CSO claims 593,600 of those living here are non-Irish, and the CSO Census figure claim 810,406 were not born in Ireland we can assume that the remaining 216,806 who were not born in Ireland either have a right to Irish Citizenship or have been handed Irish citizenship through Citizenship Referendums.
