Ireland's population has increased to over 4.7million but the total number of non-Irish nationals fell in the last five years, census figures have revealed.

Census 2016 results show that Ireland’s population stood at 4,761,865 in April 2016, an increase of 173,613 (3.8pc) since April 2011.

The only counties that saw a decline in population were Mayo and Donegal.

The total number of non-Irish nationals fell slightly to 535,475, or 11.6pc of the population. This is the first decline since the introduction of this question in 2002, while the number of people with dual-Irish nationality has increased by 48,879 to 104,784 people since April 2011.

The headline figures were published today by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) from the Census 2016 Summary Results Part I.

As well as detailing the overall change in the population since April 2011, Part I provides summary results on age profile, marital status, families, nationality, Irish language, foreign languages, religion and housing.

An increase of almost 200,000 people (up from 269,800 to 468,400) now declare themselves as having no religion.

And the number of people identifying as Catholic fell to 3,729,100 and comprised 78.3pc of the population. This is compared to 84.2pc in April 2011.

Regarding the Irish language, 3,382 fewer speak Irish on a daily basis outside of the education system. Now, a total of 78,803 people speak Irish on a daily basis.

On marriage, a total of 37.6pc of the population are married. There are 97.8 males for every 100 females in the country.

Deirdre Cullen, Senior Statistician, said: "Today’s publication is the first of a series of 13 reports on Census 2016 that are due to be published this year.

"As well as the two summary reports, the CSO will publish 11 thematic profile releases, each of which will explore separate topics such as housing, the homeless, religion, disability and carers in greater detail.

"Together, these will provide a comprehensive demographic and socio-economic profile of Ireland in April 2016."
