I find that if I go early morning it's not too bad. The Irish shoppers get up earlier so the proportion of migrants is lower.
I would never go in the afternoon--too stressful.
Yes a lot of them are not early risers that's for sure...

African Development (Bank and Fund) Bill 2018 published paving the way for further strengthening of Irish-African ties
The Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, Paschal Donohoe T.D., today (27 September 2018) published the African Development (Bank and Fund) Bill 2018. The Bill will provide for Ireland’s potential membership of the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the African Development Fund (AfDF).

Was this ever even discussed in Dail or is it another one that was slipped in under the Radar?

Just back from a gander down to the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre here in sunny Dublin 15

It is packed to the gills so I'm sure that the retailers will be pleased at the size of the footfall

However while the numbers of non Nationals there has grown exponentially in the last few years today one could not but help notice that over 50% of the customers are clearly non Irish.

Indeed I would say of that number that maybe half are clearly of non European background

AS it is unlikely that this ratio will improve in our favour in the years to come then how long before the Irish are the minority in Dublin 15?

Doesn't come as a surprise to me, alas. The Irish are an endangered species in Blanchardstown. But, back in the day, country people used to come up to Blanch for a bit of shopping before Christmas. Seems they aren't doing that any more. White flight.

Fine Gael celebrated the rape of Libya and the brutal murder of its leader in 2011 - even though Gaddafi and Libya were the main funders of African development. You can be sure that if Fine Gael is supporting this "African Development Bank," it's only purpose is to rape African and force its youth to migrate to Europe.

Off topic I know, but, when you think about Gadhafi's murder and the witch Clinton crackling, we really dodged a bullet when Trump was elected.
