    Default Over $600 MILLION sent out of Ireland to Nigeria in 2011

    Over $600 MILLION sent out of Ireland to Nigeria in 2011

    That is the startling claim made by the prestigious World Bank report into the money flows of Irish Emigrants and Foreign Immigrants for the year 2011

    Irish people living abroad sent more than $750 million (€560 million) back home in 2011.

    Foreign workers [?] living in Ireland sent almost $2.4 billion home in 2011.

    That is a net loss to the Irish Economy of some $1.6 billion per annum!


    The steady flow of money out of Ireland despite the recession is down to the high number of foreign workers still here, especially from countries such as Nigeria, India and China, said Dilip Ratha, manager of the World Bank’s migration and remittances unit.

    Money sent abroad by immigrants still growing - The Irish Times - Fri, Feb 08, 2013

    How come the Nigerian population here (30-40,000) could send such a massive remitence home each year

    When the Polish population (120,000 - 150,000) can send only about one third that amount back to Poland?

    Go figure...
    If you can convince a People to engage in the mass elimination of their own offspring - you can probably get them to do anything...http://irelandinhistory.blogspot.ie/

    Yawn. I guess there's none of them damn foreigners working in your nursing home? Be an awful hardship for you if there were. Only a matter of time...

    Nigerians had the highest unemployment rate amongst non nationals at 39 per cent while nationals from the Nordic countries had the lowest rates.

    One in five unemployed in 2011 were non Irish nationals · TheJournal.ie

    hmmmmmmm.

    So they're able to live in Rip-Off Ireland and still send money home?
    No mean feat.

    It must have been the Pascal Mooney taxi fares before he took his business elsewhere.

    the rest are driving taxis whilst in receipt of the back to work allowance.

    Only 500 Nigerians have ever been issued with a work permit.

    Why so many of them here? They are bleeding us dry.

    Help me out here please. These poor people left cruelty and persecution in Nigeria to come here for asylum. Why would they want to send money back there?
