There's a general feeling around Ireland that we may not be the Catholic country we used to be but the latest Census figures suggest that the church still has a strong following here.

There are 3,729,115 Catholics in the country which makes up for 78% of the population. The figure is down from 84% from the last Census in 2011. 

So, which is the most Catholic county in Ireland?

That would be Offaly, with 88.6% of people there describing themselves as Catholic.

Let's hope the Pope stops by the county for a pint during his visit to Ireland next year.
