Weekly Mass Attendance in Ireland (1973 to 2012)
Priest Numbers (Ireland) 1920 to 2028
Polls on matters of Faith and Morals
Note: The following results are from polls taken by groups with a vested interest in the destruction of the Catholic Church in Ireland. However, their results unfortunately appear to tally with everyday anecdotal evidence. They are not surprising, given the lack of teaching over the past 40 years.
Also, note that the purpose of publishing these results is not to imply (as the groups who carried out these polls do) that Catholic Church Teaching is somehow dependant on the opinion of the people. Instead, the purpose is to demonstrate scientifically what happens to the ordinary faithful when their Bishops and priests no longer teach them.
