Irish birthrate slumps 22% in a decade

    Despite a slight 4% jump in births for 2021 the birth rate in Ireland has witnessed a sharp 22% drop since 2011 according to newly released CSO statistics.

    All in all statistics reveal a social convergence between Ireland and the rest of Europe.

    A direct product of social atomisation and the liberal deluge, such trendlines in any other time would be regarded as a looming demographic threat pointing to wider existential malaise. 

    While nations of the East both acknowledge and seek to heal the demographic chasm through pro-family policies Ireland still remains in the wilderness in deluding itself that migration can act as a bandaid to a society losing the will to propagate itself.
