If you’re married and are really in love, you should move to Galway County (not Galway City), where you have a 92% chance of staying married. Here are the ten Irish counties or cities with the most stable marriage rates: >>>

The Top Ten

  1. Galway County (over 92 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  2. Cavan (over 92 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  3. Monaghan (nearly 92 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  4. Limerick County (nearly 92 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  5. Mayo (over 91 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  6. Roscommon (over 91 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  7. Donegal (nearly 91 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  8. Cork County (nearly 91 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  9. Kilkenny (nearly 91 marriages in every hundred stay together)
  10. Laois (nearly 91 marriages in every hundred stay together)

Says Who?

  • Figures based on latest census.
  • Successful marriages based on number of people who are either in a first marriage, widowed or remarried after being widowed.
  • Unsuccessful marriages based on number of people who are either separated, divorced or remarried after a divorce.
