The population of the Island of Ireland in 2016 was approximately 6.6 million (4.75 million[1] in the Republic of Ireland and 1.85 million[2] in Northern Ireland). Although this is a significant growth over recent years, it is still some way below the record high of the early 1840s.

Between 1700 and 1840, Ireland experienced rapid population growth, rising from about 3 million in 1700 to over 8 million by 1840.[citation needed] In 1851, after the famine, the population of Ireland had dropped to 6.5 million people. The Great Famine and the emigration caused a dramatic effect, by 1871, Ireland's population had dropped by over a third to four million, and by 1926 had reduced further to three million. It held firm around three million until the early 1970s, when the population began to rise again. Future predictions are for the population to continue to rise until 2031 when it is predicted to be just over five million.[3] The country of Ireland is one of the few remaining developed economies to have growth of this scale.

Below are some statistics to illustrate the rise, fall and rise again of the population since 1841. The statistics also illustrate a massive population shift from the west to the east of the country and increasing urbanisation. Counties such as Mayo, Roscommon and Leitrim have become depopulated while counties surrounding Dublin including Wicklow, Kildare, Louth and Meath have seen rapid population growth in recent years.

The population of the 6 counties of Northern Ireland as of 2016 is 1,851,600 which would mean a total population on the island of Ireland as of mid-2016 of approximately 6,609,576. This means the population of the island of Ireland has, for the first time in 165 years, exceeded the population recorded in the Census of 1851, the first census immediately after the Great Famine, when the population of the island was recorded at 6,575,000.[9]
