    RTE news features intending emigrants

    By Noreen Bowden | July 11, 2008

    The buzz about a projected increase in emigration is continuing, along with talk of an impending recession.

    An RTE reporter met people considering packing their bags yesterday – those interviewed included both Irish-born people and returning emigrants from other countries.

    England, Denmark and Sweden were among the destination countries named, while a Polish person said he would return home, and an Irish electrician said he was heading for Australia.

    The last ESRI quarterly report has projected that net outward migration would begin again next year.
