'Because She Never Let Them In': Irish Immigration a Century Ago and Today

Cormac Ó Gráda ()

No 201319, Working Papers from School of Economics, University College Dublin

Abstract: A century ago, and for most of the twentieth century, Ireland was a land of emigration, not immigration. However, in the space of less than a decade in the 2000s, Ireland was transformed from a homogeneous community, where non-native residents were in a very small minority, to one in which one-sixth of its inhabitants are foreign-born. The paper will compare immigration and attitudes towards immigrants in the very different Irelands of a century ago and of the present.
