The younger population of incoming specialists are increasingly likely to be female:

At the end of 2015, there were 8988 female doctors registered in Ireland, 41% of the total number of registered doctors. Counting only those doctors who graduated from Irish medical schools, the percentage of female doctors was 47%. Of doctors aged 35 or less who graduated from Irish medical schools, 62% were female, rising to 73% for those who were on the specialist register.
