The craggy-cliffed Irish island of Arranmore, now down to its last 469 residents, is recruiting new residents to help boost its dwindling population.
The island’s residents are determined to keep their traditions, community, and infrastructure alive, according to reports by CNN and ABC News. Islanders have started to write letters to the people in the United States and Australia, asking them to consider moving there.
Arranmore, whose Galeic name is Arainn Mhor, is located off the northwest coast of County Donegal. (Although County Donegal is situated in the northern part of the country, it is part of the Republic of Ireland, a member nation of the European Union.)
Arranmore’s tourism website describes the island as “wild and untamed; carrying rich, Gaelic traditions; and a vibrant heritage and culture on an island that has been inhabited since prehistoric times.”
