Places with a Majority of Non-Irish Nationals

June 15, 2007 at 2:55 am 8 comments

At least seven (and maybe nine) local areas in Ireland now have a majority of non-Irish nationals. Five are in Dublin, two in Limerick, one in Waterford and one in Cork. Here are the ten most multi-cultural Irish areas: >>>

The Top Ten

  1. Custom House B in Waterford City (pop. 286) 52-62% Non-Irish
  2. Dock A in Limerick City (pop. 2030) 57-59% Non-Irish
  3. North City in Dublin (pop. 2907) 54-58% Non-Irish
  4. Rotunda B in Dublin City (pop. 2056) 52-56% Non-Irish
  5. Mountjoy B in Dublin City (pop. 3308) 52-55% Non-Irish
  6. Shannon A in Limerick City (pop. 412) 52-55% Non-Irish
  7. Rotunda A in Dublin City (pop. 4065) 48-52% Non-Irish
  8. Centre A in Cork City (pop. 520) 51-52% Non-Irish
  9. Mansion House B in Dublin City (pop. 557) 32-51% Non-Irish
  10. Royal Exchange A in Dublin City (pop. 2855) 35-49% Non-Irish


The reason why there is a range of percentages for each area is that a small number of people do not state their nationality on the census form, so we do not know whether these people are Irish nationals or not.

    The real problem here is the infux of Culchies. They take our jobs, they fill up the hospitals having babies. They speak a language which civilised people cannot understand.

    They also march triumphantly to Croke Park, flying their banners, singing their strange songs and laying siege to Inner City Dubs.

    Enough is enough. I propose the foundation of the Culchie Control Platform. Our slogan shall be: Dublin For The Dubs. Repatriate them! Send Biffo back to Offaly!

    Perhaps they could all be repatriated to Barr Rúscaí in County Mayo?

    Its time we stopped the madness of uncontrolled immigration. We have 150,000 irish people on the live register without any chance of getting a decent job. Could someone please explain why we need more workers?

    And as for nigerians coming here, there is no direct flights to Ireland from Nigeria, so these peopel clearly are ignoring safe EU nations to come to Ireland! Why? Benefits! Time to stop the madness!!!

    The browns will rule the earth. We are already taking over your countries. And Irish people don’t stand for anything, all you are are moochers mooching off the USA like you always did. And you sided with the Nazis in ww2.

    Where would your country be without immigration? Nowhere, thats where. You don’t have the numbers to sustain economic growth.

    Speaking as an Irish person born & bred, I can honestly say that immigration is the **best** thing ever to happen to Ireland.

    Our country has changed from an ignorant and ignored province on the edge of Europe, to an intelligent and diverse nation which I finally feel I can be proud of.
    In response to Daddy Martin:

    I am not sure I understand your point – are you worried about “foreigners” who have taken your job? I would have thought you would be delighted to live off the the “fabulous” benefits that you say attract hoards of Nigerians…

    Basically you don’t want “foreigners” at all, do you?

    A question: how many of your relatives have emigrated to the UK, Australia or the US? What a nerve eh, infiltrating other countries. They and their children should be shipped back to Ireland at once!

    I am Polish and from what I can see in Ireland only lazy bastards can’t find the job. That’s the real thing.

    Dorothy: Chinese culture was there long before here or in mainland Europe the one could be called like this. So, I suppose you know Chinese huh?? If you are such a civilized person tell me how many languages you know? Ok, even basics?

    Please do not forget that all people working here work for your country, pay taxes here and some of them may become you neighbours for live… and help Celtic Tiger to run faster then other countries (economic growth).

    I just wish that one day you will understand it. I recommend Economics – even a course, maybe afterwards you’d be fully aware of basic facts…

    Wishing all the best to Irish,

    C’ya out there,

    Peter – when Dorothy mentions Culchies she means Irish people from a rural background – also known as boggers, muckers or mucksavages. Biffo = Big Ignorant F***er From Offaly. She is writing “tongue in cheek”.

    But yes you are right, the Chinese had sophisticated cities with street lighting and sewage systems at a time when our culchie ancestors were still living in trees and in holes scraped into hillsides (as many of them still live in places like Leitrim and Longford)

    All immigrants Chinese, Polish, Baltic, Romanians, Bulgarians, Filipinos etc are honest and hard working.

    The only exceptions are the Nigerians and Roma Gypsies.

    Most Nigerians are in Ireland state on IBC status (legally allowed to work but last census figures show that 75% of them didn’t work in the middle of the celtic tiger years, as opposed to 4% of the natives out of work).

    The Irish Born Child loophole has been closed by 80% of the electorate by referendum but the 24,000 Nigerians who got in before it was closed won’t go home.

    Roma Gypsies never work, ever.

    Deportations for Nigerians on IBC status and expulsion orders Roma Gypsies, cos they’re EU nationals who have never worked here.
