Response to IrishAyes (Reply #51)

Mon Apr 8, 2013, 06:46 PM

57. I'm 1st generation Irish American

I have relatives still there. In fact I live there on and off. And I live in England, with quite a few Irish people living in the mainland (most of the Beatles (born in Liverpool) are of Irish heritage, minus Ringo Starr, and one of those Irish heritage Beatles is my cousin). If you knew any better, the Irish Catholics from NI tended to come to England/Wales for job opportunities because they were discriminated against in Northern Ireland due to their religion. There were better opportunities for them outside the UK.

Unless you're visiting the deep south of the Republic, I really have to tell you that we're SICK of the IRA and the Orange Order and many want the Troubles behind them. A lot of people just look at you as if you're droll.

You're just stuck in the past.
