A new poll of more than 100 people in the country’s most populous province suggests that the Catholic Church is the religion of choice for nearly all the people polled.
The results were published in the Irish Times on Thursday.
The poll, conducted by the Irish Centre for Social Research, also showed that there was a strong connection between religious affiliation and socio-economic status.
In the same year, there were 4,400 more Catholics in Ireland than there were Protestants in 2014.
This means that the number of people with a higher socio-cultural status and who are more likely to have been raised Catholic is a clear winner in the poll.
The Catholic Church has been a strong supporter of the Irish government and the country, as well as the Irish public.
It has also contributed to the countrys economic prosperity.
The results of the poll suggest that the percentage of people who say that the Irish state is ‘good for Ireland’ has dropped from 71 per cent in 2014 to 52 per cent now.
In addition, the percentage who say the Irish people are ‘very good’ in their economic condition has also dropped from 63 per cent to 49 per cent.
The survey also showed a clear shift towards more secularism in the past year.
While 51 per cent of people said they still had no religion, the number had dropped to 38 per cent this year.
The Irish Centre, which conducts the survey for the newspaper, said that the survey results indicate that the majority of the people surveyed are ‘no longer convinced by the state of affairs in Ireland’.
