Is Ireland still Catholic?


Ireland was once known as one of the most Catholic countries in the entire world. In the 1950's and 60's, it was estimated that about 90% of the Irish population went to Mass on Sundays. However now in 2023, that number has dropped significantly to around 30%. For this St. Patrick’s Day, EWTN News reporter Colm Flynn traveled to his home country to talk to members of the Church about why they think the faith has declined so much in the Emerald Isle.
