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

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?

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

Not at the mo, but it's something I could do quite easily...

Yep, the established working-class areas tend to have the highest catholic identification...

Hi!

I'm hoping that you can reply to me as quickly as possible, since I'm writing a study which is due to Monday, and is about the differences between Dublin areas by religion and I was directed to the Forum where you posted those maps about the proportions of religions in certain regions.

So my question is: How did you divide up the Dublin region to those smaller areas? Is there a map, which also shows their names?

Thank you for your answer!!!! :)

In case Casualbets doesn't see it.

I believe the smaller areas are the District Electoral Divisions (DED). You can find the figures for each one in the Census SAPS (http://census.cso.ie/censusasp/saps/boundaries/saps.htm) section.

Considering they are the building block of our democratic structures, it's very hard to find maps of DEDs.

The best I can do is point you to the local government boundary review documents, which show them

http://www.electoralareacommittees.ie/reports/dcmapsa&b.pdf

judging by the maps produced, Casualbets has a better source than this!

Casualbets is currently on a fact finding mission in Serbia and Croatia before he returns to put his findings to, eh, 'practical use.' ;)

The less catholic areas in Dun Laoighre and the mountains are traditional protestant communities. The area in Dublin15 around Blanch is popular with the muslim community. And of course inside the canals, you'd expect to find a lot of students, young professionals and immigrants. Keep in mind that hardly anyone lives in the pheonix park, no surprises really.
