1. Direct Provision
Nobody does human rights abuses like the Irish! Give them asylum seekers 19 quid a week and keep them in limbo in a disused holiday centre for years on end – sure what are they coming here for anyway?
2. Anti-Traveller Racism
“Knackers”, “gyps”, “tinkers” – all part of the beautiful local vernacular that could only mean you’re on the Emerald Isle! And just watch what happens if they try to move into your estate.
3. US Warplanes in Shannon Airport
Neutrality – Irish style!
4. Being denied an abortion
Pregnant in Ireland and don’t want to be? Haha. Good luck.
5. Corporate tax avoidance
20 companies operating out of a one-room office in the IFSC? Sounds mad, but they’re just taking advantage of Ireland’s unique tax avoidance opportunities – and having the craic while they’re here!
6. Lovin’ tourists, hatin’ immigrants
We Irish are famous for our warm and welcoming attitude, but not if you’re black or have no money to spend!
7. Magdalene Laundries
Gone be the days!
Creamy Guinness. Yum!
