Turks in Ireland ( Turkish: , İrlanda Türkleri Irish: ) are Turcaigh in Éirinn Turkish people who live in Ireland having been born elsewhere, or are Irish-born, but have Turkish roots. By Turkish roots, this could mean roots linking back to Turkey, the island of Cyprus or the communities of the Turkish diaspora.
Population [ edit ]
According to the 2011 Irish census, there are 1,029 Turkish nationals living in Ireland.
During the time of a 2005 strike against the [3 ] GAMA Turkish Construction Company, socialist news websites reported that they alone employed 900 [4 ] [5 ] to 2,000 [6 ] Turkish workers. The Turkish embassy may have an investment in down-playing the number of Turks in Ireland given the negative reception of [7 ] Turks in other European countries, such as German Turks, Dutch-Turks and French-Turks. Thus, overall the number of Turkish descendants living in Ireland is estimated at 2,000-3,000. [2 ] [2 ]
