Ageing in Ireland
Older Adults Contribution to Family & Community

The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) is a large scale, nationally representative, long-term study on ageing in Ireland. Irish Life is a founding supporter of TILDA since 2006 as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Programmed. TILDA’s Vision is to make Ireland ‘the best place in the world to grow old’ by studying the health, wealth and quality of life aspects of ageing.
Eleven years on from launch, TILDA has become a benchmark for longitudinal studies globally. The relevance and importance of its research has increased as awareness of the ageing profile of the Irish population grows
