  1. DESPITE emigration, the population of the Republic of Ireland is increasing. Since 2008, the population rose from 4.43m people to 4.5m in 2012.

    Movements of population are faster and easier than before.

    For the thousands who leave these shores every year, thousands of people from other countries stay or arrive, with the reverse outlook to the people who have left.

    Frenchman Jean-Louis Bigot came to Ireland in 1989.

    He lives in the scenic town of Killaloe, Co Clare, with his Skerries-born wife, Elaine, and their three children.

    “I trained as a gamekeeper, basically,” says Jean-Louis. “But I was in an indoors job and, after about seven years, I started looking towards going to Ireland or Canada, because I’d been selling holidays from that office in France.”

    Jean-Louis’ work has ‘three hats’: He’s a fishing guide; he has an approved guest-house where anglers from France stay during their fishing holidays; and he is a tour operator organising bespoke holidays to Ireland.

  3. In space no one can hear you scream, but they can certainly hear you sing an Irish song for the day that is in it.
