    The main purpose of this paper is to provide a broad description of fertility trends in Ireland over the last two decades. The analysis investigates in particular whether there are regional (i.e., county) differences in relation to the levels of fertility and how these have changed. In the final part of the paper we discuss the likely future pattern of fertility trends and consider some economic and social implications arising therefrom. The last-mentioned aspect is now a matter of considerable significance since there are indications (from the annual births total) that the general decline in fertility has escalated to such an extent in recent years that the effects may be quite substantial and materialise within a relatively short period of time.
