The Irish community is one of the oldest communities in London.
3.07% of Londoners are Irish – that’s 265,000 people. In addition 900,000 ethnic Irish live in the capital
The community is vital for key professions such as construction, media, medicine and finance, London is still a draw for Irish people.
WHERE DO THEY LIVE?
Everywhere, but the highest concentration is in Brent where they made up 10% of the population (in Dollis Hill and Cricklewood it’s 20%). There are also big communities in Harrow, Ealing, and Islington.
