Uncertain Ireland: a sociological chronicle, 2003-2004.
Irish sociological chronicles; 5
Institute of Public Administration, Dublin.
Central Statistic Office figures demonstrate the
growing diversity of the nation's population. In April
2004, the population stood at just over four million,
the highest figure recorded since 1871. Nearly one-third of
immigrants in the year ending April 2004 were nationals of
countries outside the European Union or the United States.
Since May 2004, the numbers coming from the newly joined
EU member states have been in the tens of thousands.
While these new immigrants are fanning out across the
country to work in the manufacturing, agricultural and
services sectors, their presence is increasingly visible in
large urban centres like Dublin.
