The people. Nosy, gossipy, back stabbing, begrudging, spiteful, sneery and judgmental. If you broke your back suddenly in Ireland and were wheelchair bound, people would love “feeling sorry” for you.

The "cute hoor" mentality - and the many ways it manifests itself. Politics, law, social attitudes.

The fact that Conor McGregor was born here.

It's embarrassing when you're abroad that he's the first person some people think of when you mention you're Irish.

We are a passive aggressive nation. Every month there's a new scandal and as a nation we complain a little and move on. The homeless, the trolleys, the 1m breathalysers, Maurice McCabe, the bankers and the latest one from ESB oil leaks. Dunphy hit the nail on the head when he said we are living in a kip.

The narrow mindedness of most Irish people. Particularly in rural areas.

I’d give the people here a spine to stand up for themselves. If we did, a lot of the other ****e would change.

Id outlaw needless cynicism and spiteful bitterness

How come we are apparently a nation of begrudgers and yet every single person in this country complains about all the begrudgers.

Clearly the real problem is that we're not really a nation of begrudgers we're just a nation of hypocrites.

I treat people the way I expect to be treated.

So when I fund their lifestyle, housing and kids financial burden I would like a little in return for my kids even.

Unfortunately it doesn’t happen that way, they don’t care about me or my kids only their own selfish existence.

Cut the leeches off.

I don't care what it takes - they can double my USC to pay for extra prison officers, they can build a massive prison next door to my house, I really don't care how it's done once the scumbags are taken off the streets and there's an actual deterrent for the type of people that feel the law doesn't apply to them.

So what is the one thing (serious or trivial) that you'd like to change about Ireland?
Media diversity, might as well be North Korea
