Dan O’Brien wrote an article in today’s Irish Times on the history of Irish emigration over the past 200 years. You can read the full article here.

It mentions a migration graph which doesn’t appear in the online edition, so we have reproduced it below. Interestingly, it shows how Irish immigration (i.e. returning Irish emigrants) and non-Irish immigration have increased slightly since 2010.
