For many years Kenneth Connell's classic Population of Ireland has been a major source of inspiration to historians and demographers. The resulting research, which has either elaborated or criticized Connell's work, is the subject of this survey. An explanation of the logic underlying recent revisions of Connell's often quoted pre-censal estimates is followed by a reassessment of the role of shifts in fertility, mortality, and emigration in accounting for the course of population growth between 1700 and the great Famine.
