The Irish aren't making as many babies as they used to..
.

At present our birth rate isn’t high enough to replace our population. However, we’re also dying less and getting married more.

THE IRISH BIRTH rate has fallen for a fifth successive year according to new figures.

The CSO’s annual Vital Statistics Report for 2014 shows a steady decrease in both births and deaths from 2013.

Interestingly, the Irish marriage rate is going the other way, with a 7% increase being seen between 2013 and 2014.

Currently, the Irish population stands at 4,609,600 people.
