Just in case anyone was wondering what the level of Polish people in Ireland was in 2011. Many of you may not know Talbot street(dublin), but there are 2 barber shops, 3 foods shops and a canteen type shop, It's like being in Poland when you are walking on it with alot of people conversing in Polish.

Central Dublin is lost. As are large swathes of North and West Dublin. Bar armed insurrection or mass deportations, it will never again be Irish.

Such is life. Its done now.

There were more Poles here in 2006, yet the clowns claim the numbers doubled.

In 2006 the govenment claimed there were circa 63,000.

In 2008, Conor Lenihan, the minister for integration, claimed that there were at least 200,000 Poles in Ireland.

Polish embassy claimed that there could be up to 500,000.

Now,they arrive at this figure.

In truth, they havent a notion.

It never was.

It was a Viking settlement that became a town. The Irish lived in Ballybok & Irishtown. Some Irish moved into Dublin for trade reasons etc but it was accepted that the Scandinavians were the top dogs in town, but it was never set up by anyone Irish. When the brits ruled us it was the 2nd city of the empire & when the 2nd last royal visited all ye jackeens were out waving your little flags for her. lol. Hardly an Irish thing to do that, honouring a foreign oppressive queen. Sure 'tis a well known fact that people from Dublin are known as both jackeen and west brits. roflol.

Cork, or as it's pronounced Kawrk...Kilkenny & Limerick are Irish cities, all were founded before the Viking invaders plundered them and later settled and traded there. Galway wasn't established until the 12th C but it was set up by an Irishman, unlike Dublin, although it was taken over by the Normans not too long after it.

Dublin was a town long before the Vikings came around. I suggest you research the vikings and their time in Dublin. Some eventually joined Brian Boru, some natives joined with the vikings. Its not as simplistic as you make it sound.

it was never set up by anyone Irish.

Dublin is now believed to be nearly two thousand years old. The Vikings arrived in the ninth century. Did the vikings have time machines in their longboats?

When the brits ruled us it was the 2nd city of the empire & when the 2nd last royal visited all ye jackeens were out waving your little flags for her.

The King visited and the anglo Irish protestant ascendancy came out in numbers to visit her. There were mass protests held throughout Dublin during the visit, most notably, in the Phoenix park.

The native Dubliners were either indifferent or against the visit. They certainly did not celebrate it, contrary to anti Dublin propaganda.

Sure 'tis a well known fact that people from Dublin are known as both jackeen and west brits. roflol.

If Dubliners love the queen, why was the whole centre of Dublin shut down for 12 hours on her visit here last year? Snipers on roofs. Road blocks and not one person out with their union jacks, you claim they love?

Cork, or as it's pronounced Kawrk

Cork. Lets put to bed another myth. Cork people refer to themselves as the rebel county. Wanna know how they get that name? As a result of the support of the townsmen of Cork in 1491 for Perkin Warbeck, a pretender to the throne of England during the Wars of the Roses.

Lest we forget, that when the queen visited Cork, there was no shutdowns, no snipers on rooftops. Oh, but there were 30,000 Corkies out with their union jack flags!

Heres some of the "rebel counties" finest!

cork

Kilkenny & Limerick are Irish cities, all were founded before the Viking invaders plundered them and later settled and traded there. Galway wasn't established until the 12th C but it was set up by an Irishman, unlike Dublin, although it was taken over by the Normans not too long after it.

There are two "proper" cities in Ireland. Belfast and Dublin. The rest are large towns.

'The fastest growing groups were Romanians (up 110pc), Indians (up 91pc), Polish (up 83pc), Lithuanians (up 40pc) and Latvians (up 43pc).'
'A question on foreign languages was asked for the first time in census 2011. The results show that over half a million (514,068) Irish residents spoke a foreign language at home and that, unsurprisingly, Polish was by far the most common, followed by French, Lithuanian and German.' But it didn't say how many Poles there are! I've had a few friends from back in Poland who lived in Ireland (Cork) 2 went back home 1 is still there.

According to a United Nations poll, the Irish were the second happiest people in the world!

Inter ethnic and nationalities are more an Irish male/foreign female thing.

I'm looking at the demographics of your country.

Seventeen per cent foreign born(officially). Probably closer to 25%.

One of the highest figures in the world!

I'm talking about non-whites. Besides, 25% is too little even if that was referring to non-whites only. A true diverse country needs equal percentages of all races.

A south african lecturing others on diversity and all that bollix is akin to an Irish man lecturing a bunch or Mormons on the advantages of living a teetotal life.

Just an FYI on these figures. Since Alan Shatter became Minister for Justice in spring 2011, 34 citizenship ceremonies have taken place. Today being the latest one. Circa 40,000 foreigners have been awarded citizenship. There are 16 more citizenship ceremonies planned for this year.

These figures would declare these foreigners as "Irish".

Cork Street was closed this morning to facilitate these "new Irish" so I spent some time today looking into the figures.

A couple of Sundays previous, there was a fare held in the RDS, to encourage Irish people to migrate to Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

All the while the government is lashing out citizenship like confetti at a wedding.

This is no accident.

Its population displacement.

The Irish are to be wiped out.

And thats a fact.

Such identities only create conflicts and hatred. We need to mix up the human race. That is the only way to achieve world peace.

That's probably because you're exposed to white women the most. Organisms continuously change as stated by evolutionary theory. That is the way of life.

THOUSANDS OF people filed into the Convention Centre Dublin yesterday, some of them in colourful national dress, to collect citizenship documents.

Say hello to the new Irish.

Sixteen more of this soirees planned for this year.

Its population displacement, or replacement. Whatever you want to call it.

I call it "It's really cool that foreigners want to become Irish citizens", I've absolutely no problem with someone doing it if they choose to. Why do you have a problem with it?

One, they are as Irish as I am african. But more importantly, as eventually the non Irish will become the majority.

A large minority of them needed court interpreters to understand the oath.

Should need to be fluent in Irish to obtain citizenship, never mind english. And an exam, ala America.

1.77 million according to the census.

And those that scoff at the term "ethnic Irish" should do some research before they look foolish.

By comparing this map to European genetic maps they have shown that the Irish are one of the last remnants of the pre-Neolithic hunters and gatherers who were living throughout Europe over 10,000 years ago, before the invention of agriculture. The Irish really ARE different.

Its true that Poles have attempted to takeover the crown of the Irish when it comes to emigrating. They arn't a patch on them however, the irish are everywhere and outnumber polish emigree's 10 to one.

Claiming to be Irish and actually being Irish are two different things. It is fashionable at the moment in new world countries to claim to be Irish In a few decades, it will be something else.

A friend of mine is of 100% Irish descent, he denies it however, because of people like you.

The Irish really ARE different.

Not much different from the French and English, Scots and Welsh. We could be sisters.

got an proof of that?
Also could you actually answer my question?

Your idea for an exam, I can agree with, some general knowledge of histroy/geography etc, I'd have no qualms with that, how and ever buddy, I think an exam on the Irish language is a bit of a stretch. Sure, most people east of the Shannon can hardly string a sentence together in their native tongue. I love the Irish language, I really do, but I think we'd be better served learning it ourselves before forcing it down the necks of people coming to our country for a better life.
