Census 2016 finds slightly more Travellers, fewer Catholics in Co. Tipperary

Number of Catholics living in Ireland falling, Census data reveals

There were 63,443 Muslims in April 2016, up from 49,204 five years previously. In 2011, the 5,414 people with no religion comprised 4.4% of the county's population.

There were a total of 772 Irish Travellers in Co Louth at the time of the last Census in April 2016, up 17.1% from 659 in 2011.

Dublin city and its suburbs had the largest number of Irish Travellers with 5,089 people, followed by Galway and Cork.

The latest detailed Census report also highlights statistics related to Irish Travellers.

However, Catholicism is still the dominant religion, as 3.7 million people declared themselves Catholics in last year's Census.

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.

Among females, just 13.3 per cent were educated to upper secondary level or above, compared to 69.1 per cent of the general population, while 57.2 per cent of males were educated to primary level at most, compared with just 13.6 per cent of the general population.

The 19,447 persons with a Chinese ethnic/cultural background made up 0.4% of the usually resident population, while persons of mixed backgrounds (70,603) constituted 1.5%.

There were more male (502) than female (475) Travellers in Meath and nearly half (49.9 per cent) of all Travellers in the county were aged under 20, compared to 31.9 per cent of the county's overall population. Their average age was 35.3 years, making them 2.1 years younger on average than the county's population overall.

Members of the Church of Ireland decreased slightly as did the number of Presbyterians. On average, Church of Ireland members in Tipperary were 3.4 years older (40.9 years) than the overall population in the county. Orthodox (2,915) and Muslims (1,564) completed the top five.
