Be Honest To Godless in the Next Irish Census

The next Irish Census is on Sunday 3rd April 2022. This was posponed from April 2021 due to Covid.

Atheist Ireland launched the ‘Be Honest to Godless’ campaign in the run up to the 2011 census. We asked people give serious consideration to how they would answer the question on ‘Religion’ on the census form. Atheist Ireland continued this campaign in the run up to the 2016 census. Atheist Ireland lobbied for changes to the questions and while still flawed, it is better than before. We will continue to campaign on this issue.

We are asking you to think before you tick your answer to the religion question, and give an answer that matches your actual religious affiliation. If you still believe in God but you are no longer truly a Roman Catholic, please say so. If you are an atheist or agnostic or humanist and you have no religion, please tick the ‘No Religion’ box.
