Changes in Ireland’s population over the past 160 years have been made available online.

Two new digitized atlases show the levels of emigration during the Great Famine, right up until the rise of the Celtic Tiger in 2002, as well as an analysis of Ireland’s population change.

National Centre for Geocomputation, based at National University of Ireland Maynooth, has collated the information which examines 3,452 districts throughout Ireland.
