The population of Ireland rose to over 4.9 million last year, with the CSO estimating that women outnumber men by 45,500.
The statistics office has released it's latest roundup of Ireland’s Facts and Figures – with the latest information on everything from baby names to the weather.
There were 4,921,500 people living in the country in 2019, including 2,438,000 men and 2,483,500 women.
Our newest residents are doing everything they can to even up the balance with males making up 50.82% of the 61,016 births registered in 2018.
Jack is still the most popular baby boys name with Emily remaining the most popular for a baby girl; however, there were a number of new entrants into the top 100, with Frankie, Freddie and Theodore gaining in popularity for boys and Ada, Bella, Bonnie and Ivy on the rise for girls.
Meanwhile, some 21,053 couples tied the knot last year – including 664 same-sex marriages.
When it comes to equality and discrimination, more than a third (33.2%) of the LGBTQI+ community said they experienced some form of discrimination last year, the highest rate for any group.
Some 33.1% of people from non-white ethnic backgrounds said they experienced discrimination, along with 26.7% of people from non-Irish backgrounds.
Nearly a third of unemployed people also experienced discrimination.
Our animal population also remains robust with both sheep and cattle both comfortably outnumbering the number of people in Ireland.
As of June 2018, there were 7.35 million cows in Ireland and 5.11 million sheep. Meanwhile, there were 1.62 million pigs, up 4.2% on the previous year.
Meanwhile, the country is getting wetter with an average rainfall of 1,224 millimetres recorded in 2018 compared to 912 millimetres in 1971.
The CSO recorded a 0.9% rise in residential property prices in the year to October 2019.
That is a different finding to the annual Daft.ie report which found that property prices dropped by 1.2% last year.
The CSO figures are based on household dwellings registered with Revenue, while the Daft figures are based on advertised prices and include November and December.
