The Loughs Agency employs more Catholics than Protestants in Northern Ireland but won’t outline the religious breakdown of its workforce south of the border.

Fisheries Minister Michelle O’Neill told TUV MLA Jim Allister: “The Loughs Agency is only required to hold information on community background for employees living in the north of Ireland. Of these, the breakdown is as follows: 25 Protestant employees; 28 Catholic employees; and one non-determined employee.”
