This article is inane! 25% of young Irish people attend weekly mass making it the second most religious country in Europe (after Poland). Anecdotally Ireland seems to have a lesser problem with obesity than say the USA or South Africa. Irishtory (talk) 16:10, 18 May 2019 (EDT)

As Ireland is becoming more nonreligious/irreligious, it is also getting fatter. In the United States at the present time, the greater the degree of irreligiosity in a generation, the higher their obesity rate is.Conservative (talk) 17:49, 18 May 2019 (EDT)
