I on a personal and emotional level,feel no connection with Ireland.
I'm fully Irish.Both me and my parents were born here and their parents too.It is worth noting that I have tanned skin.Unfortunately this has lead to me becoming somewhat alienated in Irish society.I was never quite accepted but never
bullied.
This has begged the question,why in the "land of a thousand welcomes" has this happened?

With the state this country is in and the clowns running it, I wouldn't blame you at all for feeling like that. If I could get on a plane in the morning and leave I'd do it without a second thought. The Ireland that I had an attachment to is dead and gone, it's an island EU outpost now.

Have you never heard the quote that Phil Lynott gave as to what being black in Ireland was to him??
He said (and am para-phrasing here)
"It's like being a pint of guinness"

No one is owed a thousand welcomes. Plenty of whities who are alienated in society as well.

Because apparently, your parents are siblings.

OP, I'm also an Irish person with sallow skin who has also experienced abuse as a result. My advice to you is be who you are and play to your qualities, woman love a tan. We're brothers of the Spanish Armada, stay strong my friend.

I'm in agreement with the OP, i don't find anything particulary endearing about the place, GAA culture maybe an exception. I don't have dark skin or anything, for me, its my mentality, i don't subscribe to the Irish one.

The appauling attitude to alcohol, the joke that is our health system/public transport/infrastructure, the weather (and the constant moaning that comes with it from middle aged women) and the increasing tolerance of a scumbag sub-culture are some of the things that are driving me to emigrate.

GAA, endearing?

There are scummers in every nation on Earth.

Also, all sexes and age groups moan about the weather, bizarre to single out that subgroup.

Agreed, I'm tanned as is my mother and sister, and far from being alienated, it separates you from the pack in a positive way, more often than not, I find.

Why do people answer their own questions?
