Changes in the Catholic working class?

Last month, we reported David Ervine’s concerns of the gulf between the Protestant middle classes and the working class:

“…the Catholic middle class put back into the communities they came from, whilst the protestant middle classes have concentrated on draining the bucket dry.”

However, Mairtin O’Muillieor looks at his own Catholic community and similar concerns are beginning to arise:

“The gap between our college-going achievers — and fair play to them — and the forgotten working class of areas like West and North Belfast is widening.”
