More migrants are needed to build houses for all the migrants moving to Ireland (re-up)
The The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has said that in order to meet housing demand, there needs to be an influx of immigrant building workers. Dr Kieran McQuinn, Associate Research Professor at the ERSI said that Ireland needed to see a serious increase in housing construction over the coming years in order to meet the supply requirements in the housing sector and as a result we'll have to see sizable increases in net inward migration.
Green Party Councillor, Ossian Smyth, told told Pat Kenny on Newstalk in September of this year that the the population of Ireland is increasing by 1000 people per week. As a result, he says that 300 new homes need to be built every week to accommodate this population growth.
More than two-thirds (61,900) of those who arrived in Ireland in the 12 months to April 2018 were foreign nationals.
James Hegarty, a Statistician with the CSO:
"In the year to April 2018, 61,900 non-Irish nationals arrived to live in Ireland and 28,000 non-Irish nationals emigrated abroad. Therefore net inward migration among non-Irish nationals remained strong and was estimated to be +33,900 in 2018."
In the ESRI's 2018 Attitudes to Diversity report, they found that 59% of the Irish public wanted no Muslim migration or limited to just a few. That same figure for Roma was 75% while opposition to European migration was at 42%.
In 2011, 58% of people on the housing list in Fingal were migrants. That figure was reduced to 36% in 2017 but the huge number of Irish citizenships awarded to migrants likely masks real figures.
35% of rent supplement is paid out to migrants nationwide.
IBEC said in January 2019 that 60,000 to 80,000 migrant construction workers were needed to meet housing and infrastructure demands but questioned where these workers would live.
