Ireland is getting less religious

August 8, 2012 | By | Reply More

I had long thought of Ireland as being a country where most people followed a religion. That’s changing fast, according to a recent article in the Telegraph:

The Republic of Ireland is abandoning religion faster than almost every other country worldwide, a massive global survey on faith reveals.

An overwhelming 69% of Irish people declared themselves to be “a religious person” in the last survey conducted in 2005, but this has now plummeted to 47%.
