Over 25% of Irish households saw a close family member emigrate in the past two years, according to a survey, [I]Time To Go?[/], by the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI). Around 50% of those aged between 18 and 24 have considered emigrating: for those aged between 25 and 34, the figure is 40%.
It suggests that emigration is not just a matter for the country's youth, as over 25% of those aged between 35 and 54 have also considered moving abroad.
In the past four years, over 300,000 people have emigrated from Ireland; 40% were aged between 15 and 24.
The NYCI wants the Government to develop and implement a strategy for Irish emigrants - the appointment of a dedicated minister with responsibility for emigration policy and for the Irish abroad.
The survey also shows that most young Irish people intended to return home to Ireland after five years abroad.
The NYCI wanted the Government to engage with young Irish people abroad who may be having difficulties adapting to their new homes and with loneliness and other issues.
This is against a backdrop of an unemployment rate of around 30% for the under 25s.
Looking forward to a good, instructive show tonight with all the issues aired, and, hopefully, some pathways shown to get us out of this dreadful situation …
