In this essay, we are going to see the relationship between culture, religion and the identity in Ireland.

The first part of the essay focuses on the Irish culture. We are going to answer questions like: Does Ireland have a distinctive and homogeneous culture? What does it mean to be Irish today? Moreover, we will see if the modernization of the country has fundamental changes in their culture and whether the Irish people should be worried of the upcoming post-modernization.

[...] Religion is declining in Ireland because of three main reasons: first, the influence of the European countries, second, the church scandals of sexual abuses and finally, the increasing power of the media. For the major part of the population, the practice of religion is a question of who uses it, habits and social pressure, especially practised by the family. We can compare it with a kind of routine. Periods of changes automatically go with an upturn of religious activities. Some people are able to empathise with that change and others are afraid of it. [...]
