    Default Dublin - Religious breakdown 2006 (maps)

    I was asked to a map showing the distribution of those stating they had no religion in Dublin ("Heathens" was the term used, but I'm being Politically correct for a change...), so I went the whole hog and did a series of maps....

    CATHOLIC

    Color scheme :

    <68% Light Blue
    68%-76% Dark Blue
    76%-84% Green
    84%-92% Dark Red
    >92% Light Red





    NON-CATHOLIC (PROTESTANT, MUSLIM, JEWISH, etc.)

    Color scheme :

    <5% Light Blue
    5%-10% Dark Blue
    10%-15% Green
    15%-20% Dark Red
    >20% Light Red





    NO RELIGION

    Color scheme as above





    RELIGION NOT STATED

    Color Scheme as above

    Once you can isolate them in one area, it's easier to control them.

    Yes, and if barriers were to be set up to cope with congestion charging, that could help too...

    I can guess where the light-red section of non-Catholics in north west Dublin is, but where is the light-red section in south Dublin on the same map? And why does East Wall seem to have the highest number of atheists?
    Heavy words are so lightly thrown.

    I'm not quite sure if that's as far as the East Wall, but I suppose there are a few reasons :

    (1) A Young population
    (2) A lot of students perhaps?
    (3) Professionals and Foreign workers living in apartments?

    Em the light red area at the bottom of the map is a rural area in the Dublin Mountains west of Kilternan/Stepaside.. I think it's called Kilgobbin... Roughly 220 non-catholics out of 800 poipulation...

    The area between Dun Laoghaire Harbour and Dalkey has quite a high proportion of non-Catholics.. is this a long-standing community?

    Regarding Kilgobbin, I think the Glencree center might be in that area... would that be an explanation?

    Is it possible to see this broken down on a Constituency basis?

    Those red patches near the Mountains are contain a number of large Protestant parishes of varying denominations as well as a number of large Protestant schools
