So far, the Generation Emigration series has focused primarily on young people and families. In this week’s discussion forum, we want to shift the focus to older people.

Have you emigrated later in life, or do you plan to move abroad when you retire? If so, why?

Have you followed your kids and grandkids to their new home abroad, or have your parents done so?

If you are currently an emigrant living overseas, do you plan to return to Ireland when you retire?
