And no, we’re not talking about Lorcan. The final batch of data from the 2006 census have been published and has thrown up plenty of statistical trivia for those who like to mine this kind of thing.

Per Ruadhan Mac Cormaic:

There are 64 widowed teenagers in Ireland, the youngest of them just 15 years old.

A total of 1,318 people claim to have no nationality at all.

91 Polish Muslims, 30 Presbyterians, 23 Methodists and 329 Church of Ireland adherents who were in Ireland on census night, April 23rd, 2006.

There are only eight Muslim gardaĆ­, two more than there were Muslims working in mining, quarrying and turf production.

273 Lithuanians live in houses built between 1910 and 1940, and there are 140 Orthodox electricians plying their trade in Ireland.
