The population of Ireland was the mid-19th Century drastically. Crop failures, famine and repression by the English rule left the population of some 6.5 million (including the population of northern Britain to still belong to parts of the country) to shrink in 1841. The independence of the Republic in 1921 the population was exclusively of densely populated Northern Ireland’s 3.0 million. Many Irishmen emigrated, mainly to Great Britain and the United States. The independence from Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the early 1920s did lead to gradual improvements in living conditions, the population shrank, but still, though not quite as strong.

The nadir was reached at around 2.82 million inhabitants in the 1960s. Since then the population has again developed positively, with approximately 4.5 million inhabitants (more than 6 million including Northern Ireland) now represents the state of the mid-19th Century reached. Although the increase is primarily due to immigration, but also by births than deaths.
