62% of Limerick births outside of marriage

New statistics from the CSO for the first quarter of 2010 show a nationwide drop of 1.3% in the number of births compared to the same period last year. 34% of these were outside marriage.

The highest proportion of births outside wedlock was in Limerick, with a whopping 62%. Given the social problems already in existence in that city, does this statistic point to possibly more difficulties in the future?

Wonder if there is any connection with the high drug use and breakdown in society in Limerick. No doubt the residents liberals around here will continue to spout their PC rubbish and will continue to fail to see the consequences of their cherish liberal political correctness gone mad.

Can only remember been in Limerick once. Will go for weekends to many parts of the country including the cities. Have never consciously decided Limerick is a place to avoid but must surely have been influenced by its reputation. In recent years the media has portrayed Limerick as the Harlem of Ireland. The figure for births outside marriage does tell a story of a city at breaking point. Does anyone know Limerick well enough to treat with contempt its bad reputation ?

Hardly suprising knowing the vermin ridden pest holes in that cursed city.
If the statistics were that 63% of limerick births were outside humanity i would be suprised but not shocked.

That Limerick has a higher out-of-wedlock birth rate than anywhere else suggests nothing in and of itself - it could simply mean that Limerick is the most advanced city in the country in terms of its interpretation of the modern family. But layered with other data - number of single mothers, number of single mothers from lower socio-economic groups, number of children born to unemployed mothers or couples - it could signify something.

In [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legalized_abortion_and_crime_effect"]Legalized abortion and crime effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame], economist Steven Levitt argued that the legalization of abortion in New York after Roe vs Wade (1973) led directly to the reduction in crime in the late 1990s. He argued, effectively, that lower class families were more likely to avail of abortion, and that unwanted babies from lower social classes were more likely to end up criminals than those from other origins, and that therefore the effect of the ruling was to reduce the potential pool of criminals, and by extension the actual number of criminals reaching peak criminal age of late teens by the end of the 1990s - and therefore the crime rate would be reduced.

That the guy behind Freakonomics? If so what he says about abortion and crime rates makes a lot of sense.

Any idea on the numbers of Limerick mothers who actually know who the father is?

There's a 19 year old on her 4th baby! (Page 11)

Anybody that has more than 2 children, should be told that only their first two children are entitled to children's allowance.
If you can't afford them, don't have them. Simple.

I don't entirely agree with that argument. Abortion was legalised in America under the premise that that blacks and poor white underclass would use it. The majority of abortions in American are carried out on white middle class women. Go to any trailer park or black ghetto in America and its full of children.

Furthermore having lived in America in the early 90's there was a huge electoral swing to no nonsence Republicans who introduced 3 strike laws which meant if you committed 3 crimes you got life in prision.

The other day, i heard a young one on the radio being interviewed,
she was after squeezing out her 4th sprog,
4 seperate fathers as far as she knew,
being pissdrunk she did not remember which anto had got her pants down.

scum like this should be spayed to improve the general standard of breeding in the nation.

Other cities and towns in Ireland arent far behind.

The christian beatitude in modern socialist Ireland is that the poor shall inherit the world.

For a large part of human history the most bright and clever reproduced.

Now we have a state where the largest familes are knackers.

The stupid will now inherit the earth.

What a hell we live in.

Thank god for the economic crisis I hope it destroys the welfare state.

Fingal recorded the highest birth rate of 22.2 per 1,000 population, while Galway city recorded the lowest birth rate of 12.7
Galwegians half the birth rate of North Dublin?
Time for the Tribesmen to start knockin' wellies.

Funny, no one has suggested education. Typical P.ie, lets have a snigger at the poor uneducated. The fact no one has even attempted to redress the propblem mentioned in the OP speaks volumes. What next? will the poor have to pass' fit for breeding tests'?

Shame.
