The Irish have a reputation of being welcoming and overall friendly people - and one of the country's most remote islands is only further proving that to be true. You see, the once thriving Inishturk Island has seen its population plummet in recent years to just 58 people. So to help grow their community, they're seeking out people they think might be looking for an escape: Americans who aren't happy with their country's current state of politics.
Since the island is located nine miles off of the coast, it's extremely tranquil and ideal for people looking for a quiet lifestyle. That's why community leaders believe it will appeal to certain U.S. citizens: "I've heard there are quite a few people in America looking to move to Ireland and other countries if Donald Trump becomes president. I'd like them to know that we'd love to see them consider moving over here," Mary Heanue, Inishturk's development officer, told Irish Central.
The fishing community promises to provide a warm welcome, excellent education opportunities for children (since the teacher to student ratio is close to one-on-one), and Guinness galore. Okay, we added that last part, but we're confident it's true.
Take a look at what their quiet island life looks like:
