Poll: Will you attend a religious service today?

In Census 2011, 84 per cent of the population described themselves as Roman Catholic, and there were a number of other smaller Christian groupings recorded too. Does that translate into people in pews on Christmas Day?

HAPPY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!

While Ireland has become a much more multicultural place in recent years, the last Census in Ireland (2011) saw 84 per cent of the population define themselves as Roman Catholic, 2.8 per cent as Church of Ireland and a number of other Christian groupings increasing in size.

With so many people subscribing to religions that celebrate Christmas, will the corresponding houses of worship be packed to capacity today? We’re wondering: Will you attend a religious service today (or did last night)?


Poll Results:

No (1980)
I intended to, but didn't get around to it (1122)
Yes (584)
