Relevance of Map[edit]

The map is good but it covers the 9 counties of Ulster and doesn't show the border - this is an article about Religion in NI. Also, the colour scheme is explained without showing samples of the colours. PeterClarke 13:18, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

I've visited Northern Ireland many times (I live in the Republic of Ireland) and I notice that Northern Ireland Protestants tend to be blonder than Catholics. (In fact, I would say they are probably blonder than people in other parts of the UK as well.) Does anyone know of any research that addresses this question? Or is there some kind of (social) class issue involved?

In the Republic it can be hard to tell Protestants and Catholics apart, but in Northern Ireland you often don't have to do anything else than look at the colour of their hair. Weird :-/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.100.37.108 (talk) 16:39, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
