50,000 to emigrate from Ireland in 2011

The Economic and Social Research Institute has estimated that 50,000 people will emigrate from Ireland in 2011. They also calculate that 25,000 jobs will be lost but that the economy will grow by 1.5 percent with exports increasing by six percent.


They estimate that employment in Ireland will average at 13.5 percent this year but that is will drop slightly in 2012 to 13 percent.

The number of people emigrating (50,000 in 2011) is compared to the 44,000 people who left Ireland at the height of the 1980s emigration.
