Irish population to hit 6.7m by 2060

Ireland will continue to experience one of the strongest population growths in Europe over the next 50 years.

Figures released by the EU Statistics Office today estimate that Ireland's population will have reached 6.7m by 2060.

However according to the Eurostat figures, Baltic states and some eastern European countries will experience a fall in population.

The 'Baby Boomers' of the 1960s will be responsible for the swell in the number of elderly living in the EU over the next five decades.
