Description:
The island of Ireland is an ageing society with nearly one million people aged 60 years or older. By 2031, it is expected that Northern Ireland’s percentage of people aged 60 or older will increase to 28 per cent. It will take until 2041 to reach a similar level in the Republic of Ireland. There is also a significant increase in the oldest old. By 2041 the number of people aged 85 years or older will rise almost fivefold, from 74,000 to 356,000 with the number of centenarians predicted to top 8,500 by 2041.1
