Brazil, India, and Romania Lead Inbound Migration, Reveals 2022 Census

The 2022 Census in Ireland indicates a mixed migration trend, with a notable departure of young people seeking work opportunities abroad, juxtaposed against an influx of individuals from Brazil, India, and Romania.

The census reveals that the Indian community is the largest group of non-Irish citizens, with almost 10,000 arrivals in 2021. The Indian diaspora has notably increased in the last few years, with an estimated 80,000 individuals now residing in Ireland. Notably, the census reports a decline in the number of Polish residents, dropping by 24% compared to the 2016 census. Polish remains the most spoken foreign language in Ireland, despite a return migration to Poland attributed to factors such as the booming economy and lower living costs. Multilingualism is on the rise, with over 750,000 people speaking a language other than English or Irish at home, signifying Ireland’s growing diversity.

The Immigration Council of Ireland emphasises the importance of embracing diversity and acknowledges the positive contributions migrants bring to Ireland’s development, urging a forward-looking approach to migration.
