Venerable Matt Talbot Readership by Countries

Some writers maintain that the name of Matt Talbot is not well
known outside of Ireland. That may remain true for certain countries but less so for others.

Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland in August 2018 and kissing a Matt Talbot relic surely increased awareness of Matt worldwide, especially for Catholics.

To see what the top ten countries are that have read about Matt Talbot posted on our Venerable Matt Talbot Resource Center blog over the past eight years indicates the following ranking: United States (53%), Russia, Ireland, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Ukraine, Canada, Poland, and China.

Viewing just this past month's readership about Matt Talbot, the United States and Russia far exceeded Singapore, Poland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Canada, Germany, and Unknown Region.
