CSO publishes figures on Mayo Travellers, ethnicity and religion

Number of Catholics living in Ireland falling, Census data reveals

According to Census 2016 data released yesterday, 481,388 people stated they had no religion - compared to 204,151 in 2011. Dublin city and suburbs had the largest number of Irish Travellers with 5,089 persons. Tuam, with 737 persons, has the highest number of Irish Travellers.Navan, Mullingar, Dundalk and Ballinasloe all had 500 or more Irish Travellers in 2016.

In Mayo, there were 1,303 Irish Travellers enumerated in the county in April 2016.

Meanwhile, the data also shows the Traveller population has grown by just over five per cent from 29,495 in 2011 to 30,987 previous year. They made up 1 in 100 (1%) of the county's population, compared to 0.7% at national level.

THE number of people in Ireland who call themselves Catholic has dropped by nearly six per cent since 2011.

Over half (56.0%) of all Travellers in the county were aged under 20, compared with less than 3 in 10 (28.0%) of the county's overall population.

In April 2016, those who indicated a "White Irish" ethnic or cultural background amounted to 110,637 people (86.3% of the county's population), a decline of 1,649 on 2011.

This was followed by persons with "Any other White background" (9.5%), non-Chinese Asian (1.7%) and "other including mixed background" (1.5%).

Those with "Black or Black Irish (African/any other Black background)' comprised 3,062 persons (1.6 per cent) while 2,589 persons (1.3 per cent) indicated an 'Asian or Asian Irish (Chinese/any other Asian background)'".

Meanwhile the Christian Orthodox religion saw the second biggest growth at 37.5 percent with its numbers standing at 62,187, with Romanians making up 33.5 percent of the overall population.

While Catholics account for 78.3pc of the population, the number is substantially down compared with five years ago when the figure stood at 84.2pc.

Kilkenny County Council has said the increase is not attributable to people moving in from neighbouring counties, but rather due to the young age at which couples are starting families. The average age of Catholics in the county was 40.6 years, slightly above the county's overall average age of 40.2 years.

Nearly 470,000 people, meanwhile, said they had no religion - compared to 204,151 in 2011.

Persons born outside Ireland make up 12% of the country's total Catholic population.
