There are many Irish ones, some you'll know...
Amanda Brunker.... Novelist, journalist, commentator
Anna Nolan... TV presenter, producer
Bernadette Devlin McAliskey... Socialist and Irish nationalist
Bob Geldof, Chris O’Dowd, Cillian Murphy, Clare Daly, Conor Cruise O’Brien, Dara O’Briain to name a few.

Then there are people who focus on what is important in life...

If they're motivated by any religious or superstitious beliefs they don't inflict them on others. In fact, they don't mention them.

And then there are the new atheists...
“New atheists” promote reason, science, empathy and human rights; campaign to oppose the harm caused by religion, from Catholic sexism and homophobia to Islamic floggings and stonings; and engage in charitable activities without preaching.
“New atheists” also promote secularism: the idea that the state should be neutral on the issue of theology. This is the only way to protect equally the right of everyone to believe what they want.
