Irish birth rates remained high well into the 1980s, much longer than other European countries, meaning there is a large cohort of working-age people in the population. What’s more, emigration trends in the 1960s, 1970s and more recently in the years 2008 to 2015 mean that many Irish-born people in old age don’t live in the State, shielding the exchequer from the associated spending pressures of their ageing.
