St. Patrick's Day

Irish Diaspora

Since 1700 between 9 and 10 million people born in Ireland have emigrated. This is more than the population of Ireland at its historical peak in the 1840s of 8.5 million. The poorest of them went to Great Britain, especially Liverpool; those who could afford it went further, including almost 5 million to the United States.

Other major destinations were Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and Argentina.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
