Ireland is now a country with older and less religious people and with more migrants and travellers, and we are speaking less Irish, according to the first results from Census 2016.

The population of Ireland rose by 3.8 per cent between April 2011 and April 2016, according to results from the Central Statistic Office (CSO) published today.

Based on the census conducted on every home in the country on April 24th last year, the population on that night was 4,761,865. This is the slowest rate of increase recorded since the 1991- 1996 census period.

Population change between 2011 to 2016 was largely driven by natural increase, with births outnumbering deaths by 196,000.

Overall migration patterns over the five years revealed that 22,500 more

I'm not sure where's he's getting those numbers from but there were 49,204 Muslims in Ireland in April 2011 and the total of those with no religion, atheists and agnostics stood at 277,237 in 2011.

Census data significant in patronage debate. - Emma O'Kelly (RTE)

Quote:
Today’s preliminary Census data on religion has huge pertinence for the long-running school patronage debate.

The picture it reveals fits with what campaigners for change have long argued; that there is a steadily growing demand for non-religious or multi-denominational schooling here, writes Education Correspondent Emma O Kelly.

The data published today by the Central Statistics Office does not give any great detail but it shows a significant increase in the number of people stating that they have no religion, up by 74% on four years ago to 268,000.

On top of that, a further 125,000 chose not to tick any religion box when they filled out their Census form last year. This is a 78% increase on those ticking no religion box in 2011.

The Census data also shows a rise in numbers practising non-traditional minority religions here, such as Islam or Hinduism, although those numbers still remain quite small overall.

But in terms of the school patronage debate the most interesting figure contained in today’s preliminary data is the fact that 45% of those who say they have no religion are in the 20 to 39 age bracket. This, even though this bracket represents just 28% of the general population.

This is the age group that is having babies, and sending young children off to school, and it’s significant that it’s here that the highest proportion of people stating they have no religion is found.

The Roman Catholic religion continues of course to dominate, but its dominance has fallen sharply, according to the CSO.

78% of people here identify as Catholic, compared to 84% five years earlier. That’s a fall of 6%. Yet the Catholic church still runs 92% of Irish primary schools.

While 16% of the population is now not Catholic, that percentage is probably significantly higher when it comes to children.

Yet very many of those children have no option but to attend Catholic schools, where the Catholic faith is taught as an integral part of the school day.

Today’s CSO summary provides one other piece of relevant data. Examining the percentage of non-Catholics by county it finds that in three large urban areas, Dublin City, Dún Laoghaire, and Galway city more than one in three of the population is non-Catholic.

Yet the overwhelming majority of publicly-funded schools in all three of these areas, at both primary and second level, continue to be controlled by the Catholic church.

The CSO data begs one further question; how many of the 84% who ticked the Roman Catholic box were baptised into that faith simply in order to secure a school place? Unfortunately the Census data won't provide any answer to that question.

For all those who are interested in a more comprehensive breakdown of this data, there’s a six-month wait. The CSO plans to publish its detailed figures on religion in October.
