Irish people are becoming less religious according to a major new survey.
Less than half of Irish people would consider themselves to be religious, leaving Ireland 43rd out of 57 countries in the report.
The WIN-Gallup International Religion and Atheism Index measures global self-perception on belief.
It found that poorer countries are more religious than richer nations.
The report also revealed that many Irish people have been questioning their faith in the wake of the abuse scandals in the Catholic Church.
