Abstract

The characteristics of populations are very often at the heart of social issues and demographic change has always been a fundamental element of the evolution of nation states. It is essential to study these aspects of change very carefully. Among the many published books and articles on the Irish economy, those concentrating on its demographic aspects are few and far between. This work aims to help fill that gap.

This dissertation examines the effect of demographic trends on Ireland's economy in the late 20th early 21st century.

A multitude of literature is reviewed, among them are books, published articles and web sites. All of the information that has been gathered has been used to deduce three hypotheses, which form the basis of the primary research.

The primary research that is carried out is intended to confirm or reject each of these hypotheses.

The final aim of this work is to provide a better understanding of demographics and the effects they have on Ireland's economy.
