I'm an Irishman living in the UK, but the last time I was back in Ireland (3 weeks ago) the recession was in full swing. There are predictions of at least 50,000 people being out of work in the construction industry alone.

The plan for most of them seems to be... move to Australia.

Apparently lots have already done this, but they have a six-month wait on their visa and getting their trade cards (plumbers, electricians, etc).

Have you noticed much of an upturn??? And is there enough work there for them all???
