The ERSI informed us today that Ireland will need more immigrants if it plans to build more houses for immigrants.

The Irish merry go round immigration system just gets crazier each day.

ESRI report claims Ireland needs construction workers to come from abroad to fulfil house-building targets

Ireland will need major inward migration of construction workers if the industry is to achieve targets for new housing.

However, a new report from the ESRI says the high cost of accommodation is acting as a deterrent for people who want to work here.

The ESRI research says the construction sector is going to need a major boost to employment numbers if housing supply is going to meet demand and that much of the extra labour will have to come from immigrant workers.
