From the Irish Times: "In the grim 1950s, 40,000 people left Ireland every year to emigrate to Britain. They built the roads and repaired the bombed out buildings of post-war Britain. They staffed the hospitals, the factories and the railways of a booming country while the economy stagnated at Ireland.  It is estimated that half of all Irish people born in the 1930s emigrated, the large majority to Britain."
