During the so called Celtic Tiger years – plenty of people moved to Ireland for work .
Then a recession hit Ireland in 2008/2009 – and now as Ireland isstill gradually getting over the worst downturn for decades , thousands of Irish people are still leaving Ireland each year to find work.
Historically – England and other parts of the UK have always been popular destinations for Irish people looking for work. The UK is Ireland’s closest neighbour – and there have been strong Irish communities in many English cities for many years. There is no language problem – and most Irish people are familiar with English soccer teams and English TV and newspapers.
