I can't see how they aim to achieve that level of population growth in this period of time

There appears to be a lot of confusion between two seperate documents published by the Government back in February.
1. National Planning Framework - often referred to as the Ireland 2040 plan - exactly as it says on the tin - a policy designed to bring in place a planning framework that will deliver an Ireland in 2040 as envisaged in the plan, which will also absorb the additional million people that will be around then. It's not a document that plans how we will grow our population, it just tries to ensure that the country will be able to cater for these million people that will be here whether we like it or not.
2. National Development Plan 2018-2027 - a capital investment plan full of projects that facilitate the implementation of the 2040 plan that will be delivered between 2018 and 2027. A ten year plan is sensible as there are a number of projects that will take upto 10 years to implement (Metro, DART Expansion, Cork-Limerick motorway etc)
