The present discussion on the Irish population problem
has been arranged on the invitation of the Director of Broadcasting
by the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland. This Society
which in a few years will celebrate its centenary has provided in the
past and continues in an increasing degree still to provide opportunities
for the examination and discussion in a scientific and non-partisan
spirit of problems of social interest in Ireland. Membership is not in
the least restricted to experts and the Society welcomes all who from
any standpoint take an interest in its work. The date of the Society's
foundation, 1847, the year of the Famine, marks a crucial point in
the trend of Irish population and makes it appropriate that the first
broadcast of proceedings of the Society should relate to this subject
which under different aspects to-day remains a leading social problem
of the country.
On April, 1937, the following discussion on the Population Problem
was broadcast front Radio Eireann under the auspices of the Society.
The President, Mr. Joseph Brennan, acted as Chairman. Others taking
part were Dr. E. C. Geary, Professor G. A. Duncan, Professor George
O'Brien and Mr. Stanley Lyon, Director of Statistics Branch, Department
of Industry and Commerce.
