Ireland as a whole is very safe, much safer than the USA. Dublin has unique problems resulting from a huge underclass of teenage scumbags
That goes for the U.S.A. too Atch.
If you go to any Democrat run city in the U.S.at night by yourself, you are asking for trouble from the Black underclasss scumbags.
Their own upstanding people won't even go out at night.
and a very weak response to them by the courts.
Same here Atch, there is so many murders (33 in Chicago last week end) that the courts don't have time to prosecute assaults and when they do the punks get a slap on the hand.
And like parts of Ireland, where I live, I would feel safe walking down the streets in my hometown all night long by myself.
Thank you for your enlightening response, Atch.
