Ireland asks diaspora to 'come home'

Eurozone debt crisis prompts country to turn to diaspora overseas to help boost economy.

    Ireland did not escape the strain of the eurozone debt crisis.

    Now Irish businesses are turning to Irish people overseas to help rescue the Irish economy.

    Ireland has an enormous diaspora among European countries - four million living in the country, and more than 70 million living elsewhere.
