Almost 12% of the population in County Cavan are non-Irish nationals, according to the latest analysis of Census 2011.
The Central Statistics Office released the figures today, showing that 8,409 (or 11.6%) non-Irish nationals were living in the county at the time of the Census last year.
This is largely in line with the national average of 12%.
Of the non-Irish nationals resident in County Cavan, 2,118 were UK
nationals (the largest non-Irish nationality in the county), followed by
Polish nationals with 1,889 persons.
Today's publication "Profile 6 Migration and Diversity - A Profile of
Diversity in Ireland " presents a profile of the non-Irish nationals
living in Ireland in April 2011, along with results on recent migration,
foreign languages and ability to speak English.
Deirdre Cullen, senior statistician at the CSO: "This report provides
further analysis of the non-Irish population living in Ireland at the time
of the last census. It examines aspects such as mixed nationality
households, age structure and marital status, numbers by towns, as well as
new data on ability to speak English by year of arrival into Ireland."
The full report is available on the CSO website at www.cso.ie/census along
with all the data which is available in a range of interactive web tables.
