L atest figures reveal the population of the European Union is decreasing after nearly two decades of growth, so you could call it the luck of the Irish that the opposite is the case in this country, with Taoiseach Micheál Martin welcoming the news that Ireland’s population is now the largest in the history of this republic.

Immigration has played a part, for certainly the demographics of this country town has changed in recent years. Nowhere is this better encapsulated than by a new business run by Julien, a French chef who is keen on promoting South African street food; while his South African wife, Ashika, is more partial to focusing on French cuisine. On top of which Ashika’s heritage is Indian, with her family arriving in South Africa in 1860.
