Thread: Emigration shows East West divide

  1. #1

    Default Emigration shows East West divide

    Just looking at the 2010, there's a starting difference between emigration rates on the west coast and the east coast. The Dublin rates can be explained by non Irish nationals returning home.

    Has the recession just re-emphasised the divisions in this country and the failure of successive government to create sustainable employment opportunities in disadvantaged areas?
    Thank you for the six thousand likes.

    Don't know about that. More non nationals have been coming in post boom. I personally haven't seen a significant drop of them here in Dublin.

    Maybe Shell could be encouraged to invest in rural coastal areas. Oh wait a minute...

    Local Authorities have failed to create nucleated population centres around the large towns, result is a dispersed population with no large economic hubs, which then results in migration. Just look at Northern Ireland, far more effective planning, even in rural areas.

    I was referring to spatial planning, not culture/history or visual attractiveness.

    Apologies for sounding Dublin centric here but it simply not attractive enough for more people to live in the west. Britain, France, Holland or Germany have multiple centres to choose where people and companies want to move to. In Ireland the only major city is Dublin, drop Galway or Limerick into Europe and they would never be seen again.

    so long as we have one off housing, the economy of the regions will continue to decline.

    Why in rural France do they have little villages that can maintain a bakery, butcher, grocery shop, a pub or two, post office, petrol station etc What do they do that we dont do?
    In some parts of the West now you will need to have a store of petrol at home because the nearest filling station could be twenty miles away

    They are not there for the boom, only the benefits.

    Change it so they can't send money abroad to their bank accounts abroad and then you will see a difference.

    Planning is a real problem in terms of a sustainable economy - some long term travel through europe suddenly opens ones eyes to a real problem in Ireland.
