Map of Ireland

Since St. Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland in the first century, it has been lead by the Roman Catholic Church. Northern Ireland is primarily Protestant. Centuries-old political differences between Irish Catholics and Northern Protestants have subsided in recent years as the parties agreed to a power-sharing government. Both churches, however, face declining membership and increasing secularization. Islam is the fastest-growing and third-largest religion in Ireland.
