According to the 2011 census, of a population of 4 588 252, 84% are Roman Catholic, 6% non-religious, 2.8% Church of Ireland (Protestant), 1% Muslim, and the remainder are of various other religions. 85% describe themselves as ‘White Irish’ and 0.6% as Irish Travellers. 58 697 people identify as ‘Black’ or ‘Black Irish’. Between 2006 and 2011 ‘Other White’ (non-Irish) rose by almost 43%, largely due to immigration from Eastern European countries. 595 355 people, approximately 13% of the population, recorded having a disability. No census questions were asked as to sexual orientation but 4 042 cohabiting same-sex couples were recorded. Non-Irish nationals consisted of 544 357 (12% of the population), 386 764 of whom are nationals of another EU Member State.||Type of material:||Technical Report||Publisher:||European Commission||Copyright (published version):||2017 European Union||Keywords:||Age discrimination; Anti-discrimination measure; Disability; Sexual orientation; Equal treatment; Ethnic discrimination; Ireland; National law; Religious discrimination; Sexual discrimination; Social policy||DOI:||10.2838/202086||Other versions:||https://publications.europa.eu/en/publication-detail/-/publication/23abdff1-b2e9-11e7-837e-01aa75ed71a1/||Language:||en
