Following trends throughout the English-speaking world, however, their presence in the schools began to seriously wane from the late 1960s. 53 This decline continued; by the middle of the 1990s, the religious orders provided only 1 percent of the teachers in Catholic primary schools and less than 1 percent within the secondary school sector. 54 Over the centuries, Catholicism in Ireland remained stronger than it did in England, being the church of the majority despite being subjected to constant threat from outside forces.
