Irish communities

See also: Irish British. This is a fairly controversial ethnic group, as in the 2001 UK Census only 869,093 people in Britain called themselves Irish (mostly people who are Roman Catholic from Northern Ireland or people born in the ROI), but it is thought that over 6 million Britons are at least 1/4 Irish (10% of the population), also Northern Ireland's citizens many be classed as Irish (in that they are born on the island of Ireland and can be entitled to Irish citizenship), and Northern Ireland being part of the UK also means that true figures are hard to calculate. However the list below does show how many people of Irish descent are thought to live in the mainland UK's largest cities.[10]

  • Birmingham-300,000, almost a third of Birminghams population.
  • London - 900,000 (12% of city's population), despite this, some sources put the population of people of Irish descent in London at 77% (some 5 and a half million people), although the White British and White Irish populations combined are less than this[11][12]
  • Liverpool - An overwhelming majority of its 400,000 inhabitants[13]
  • Manchester - 160,000 (35% of city's population), 900,000 in metro[14]
