Attached are the latest rates for Ireland and the EU 28 average for adult participation in lifelong learning (formal and non-formal). 

Please note that there is a break in series for 2017, and it is not possible to compare the rates for Ireland in 2017 and 2018 with earlier years.

Data for 2019 has not yet been published.
