    Government source here:

    Of which 41k were Irish. Dont want this thread to be about pros and cons of multiculturalism, there is another thread for that.

    I'm interested in what looks like, to me, a severe lack if planning for these kind of numbers.

    Rental vacancies are at a low

    Not seeing any political debates on how best to deal with this influx.

    Should we be building a new city somewhere ? How many more schools and hospitals will be needed etc.

    Some of the top source nationalities:

    PPS NUMBERS ISSUED SO FAR IN 2022 to end of July this year.

    BRAZIL 10,600

    ROMANIA 9,818

    GEORGIA 1,109


    SOMALIA 1,101

    Anyway of predicting based on the list

    How many are likely to be temporary (Ukraine?) Are non EU more or less likely to stay long term etc etc.

    Just seems like a total lack of planning and foresight. Or is there even a problem at all...
