Research over the last two decades has established,

unequivocally, that Irish migrants living in Britain have significantly poorer health than the population as a whole and that this disadvantage extends to the second generation and those of Irish Catholic (or patrilineal Irish) descent from the immigration of the nineteenth and twentieth

centuries. Moreover, Irish men and women who are migrants have been shown to have higher standardised mortality ratios for all causes of death and for ischaemic heart disease than residents of Ireland.
