Coverage of the results of an Ipsos MRBI / Irish Times survey of attitudes among recent emirgants continues today.

A majority of those who have emigrated in the past few years say they are happier now than when they lived in Ireland, according to the survey. A substantial majority believe their quality of life is better than at home and people say they have a healthier diet and take more exercise.

In the newspaper today, read analysis of the survey by Kathy Sheridan and Stephen Collins, opinion on return migration by Dr Marc Scully, and a personal account of the emigration experience by Ciarán Turbitt.
