391 – Ireland As 100 People


If there were only 100 people in Ireland, 55 of them would be speaking only English, 39 of them would be speaking mainly English, and occasionally Irish, 2 of them would be speaking mainly Irish and one would be speaking Polish. Three would be speaking other languages.

Michal Boleslav Mechura collected these and other data from the Irish Census 2006, and crafted them into a few interesting cartograms.

Many thanks to him for sending in this map. Visit his websitehere for more, reflecting immigration, religion and residence intrapolated (if that’s the right word) from Republic of Ireland’s 4.24 million actual residents (Census 2006) to only 100 representative ones.
