The cliche is true, Gardai ARE more likely to marry nurses than any other profession.

In what's been dubbed the 'Coppers effect', 15% of male Gardai marry nurses, followed by fellow Gardai and teachers.

The CSO says most people tend to marry someone from their own profession, 80 percent of women farmers marry men who also farm.

The report called 'Who Marries Whom? - An Occupational Hazzard' finds that 49% of female Gardai marry other Gardai, followed by farmers and lorry drivers.

Women who marry within their profession are most likely to be farmers, taxi drivers, Gardai, doctors and shopkeepers.

Men who marry within their profession are most likely to be nursery nurses and assistants, nurses and midwives, florists, teachers and doctors.
