Ireland: bigger, older, less Catholic
May 31, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: According to Ireland’s 2022 census, the nation’s population has surpassed 5 million for the first time in 171 years, in large part because of immigration.
Only 69% of Irish say they are Catholic—down from 92% in 1991, 84% in 2011, and 78% in 2016.
