Ireland, England and Scotland

Ireland has since been known for its steadfast faith and troubled history.  Although many left Ireland due to political oppression and lack of opportnity before the Irish Potato Famine,  the famine triggered an even greater loss of population:  many millions more emigrated to the U.S., Canada and other countries, so that the country lost about half of its population. As a result of this mass outflow of people, many people in the U.S. and Canada have a connection to Ireland, since almost one quarter of the population emigrated to the U.S. and Canada.

Yet the influence Ireland has had around the world on the Catholic faith has been very significant. In fact much of our Catholic identity was preserved in the monasteries of Ireland through the middle ages. It is a beautiful country filled with beautiful people and many Catholic shrines. Although there was an economic boom in the past few years (with its accompanying loss of spirituality), it has always been a country steeped in Catholic tradition.
