Abstract

The article explores three claims made in my recently published book, Transforming Post-Catholic Ireland: Religious Practice in Late Modernity, on which it is based. The three claims are that: 1) we can characterise the island of Ireland as 'post-Catholic'; 2) we can describe the religious landscape in Ireland as a 'market'; and 3) the concept of extra-institutional religion - which I develop in the book - can help us understand how religion is changing and evolving.
