Religion

Ireland is a country where religion and religious practice have always been held in high esteem.

Although the majority of Irish people are Roman Catholics, many other religions are respected and practiced in Ireland. There are Church of Ireland, Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist Churches, as well as Eastern Orthodox (Russian and Greek) and Salvation Army Communities. Several American gospel groups are represented, as are Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and Quakers.

In addition to the Christian denominations, there are centres for Buddhists, Hindus, Bahais and for people of the Islamic and Jewish faiths.
