Irish settlement in Argentina is part of the story of immigration in Argentina and the Irish diaspora. Irish emigrants from the Midlands, Wexford and many counties of Ireland arrived in Argentina mainly from 1830 to 1930, with the largest wave taking place in 1850-1870. The modern Irish-Argentine community is composed of some of their descendants, and the total number is estimated at 500,000-1,000,000. Argentina is the home of the fifth largest Irish community in the world.
