Emigrating from Ireland

Written by Robinsons Relo
Storage Specialist

During the first four months of 2010 around 65,000 people emigrated from Ireland. Around half of these people moved abroad to find work.

Voluntary emigration is certainly a rewarding and fulfilling experience; however forced emigration can be a stressful and distressing time.

This weekend at Dublin RDS, a working abroad exhibition will showcase employment options in several industries overseas.

Canada and Australia are the dominant force at the expo with hundreds of jobs available on offer. Organisers at the event are expecting a wide demographic than ever before.

Expo organiser Stephehn McLarnon, said, “There has been some scepticism about whether Irish people are in fact emigrating, with many believing that we are simply losing our surplus of non national workforce.

“This year we have seen not alone a marked increase in the numbers of Irish looking to relocate, but a broader demographic mix than ever before. Some people are selling their homes to restart, others are retraining to meet visa criteria, while graduates are looking for a first step on the career ladder.”

Around 50,000 people are expected to leave Ireland to start their career abroad by next year.
