These are the top 10 non-Irish nationalities living in Ireland

Census data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) has revealed the top 10 non-Irish nationalities living in Ireland.
According to the 2016 Census, the country’s largest base of non-Irish residents are from Poland. There are currently around 20,000 more Polish people living in Ireland than there are people from the UK, who make up the second-largest group of non-Irish residents.
Four new additions to the top 10 list in 2016 from 2011 include Brazilian, Spanish, Italian, and French nationals, reports Joe.ie. The top 10 nationalities account for nearly 70 percent of all non-Irish nationals.

According to the report, there were nearly 536,000 non-Irish nationals resident in Ireland at the time of the census.

Nine of the nationalities on the list had a higher labor force participation rate than the Irish state population (61 percent). Only UK nationals living in the country had a lower labor force participation rate, largely due to the relatively high proportion of retired UK nationals.

Poland — 122,515
UK — 103,113
Lithuanian — 36,552
Romanian — 29,186
Latvian — 19,933
Brazil – 13,640
