This article explores the relationship between globalisation and development, recent trends in migration, and the changing face of reproductive health services and needs in the Republic of Ireland. Using the Irish Family Planning Association as a case, I demonstrate that newly emerging migration patterns impact on the administrative and clinic-based work of non-government organisations (NGOs) working on reproductive health in Ireland. These patterns are challenging and re-shaping the policy and practices of such organisations, as they address the different needs of women living in Ireland.
