    I am Irish, I live here and I do listen to what other Irish people say about black people. Hostile comments are exceedingly rare. If there is significant prejudice in this country, it's directed towards Travellers and to a lesser extent, Muslims IMHO.
    If you're not a black person in Ireland, you don't know what it's like to be a black person in Ireland. Unless you have some reason to think the guy is lying, you should take him at his word.

    Would be interesting to know if he considers Ireland and Scotland more or less racist than the USA.

    I hope he didn't get his impression of Ireland by reading Politics.ie

    THAT'S what he's doing wrong!

    Quincy darling, forget Politics.ie. Leave Bono's "castle" and come out to explore The Real Ireland.

    Not if P.ie is a reflection of society as a whole

    (I in no way think P.ie is a true reflection of society as a whole in Ireland - thank god)

    He probably has a point about racism, but when I consider the important role he played in subjecting us all to the horror that was Michael f¨cking Jackson, I'm inclined to say "f¨ck 'im".

    By the sound of things neither does Quincy if his experience of Ireland is limited to Bono's gaff?

    No, we should say Ireland is innocent until proven guilty not guilty till proven innocent and ask him to provide evidence.

    No, he can be wrong and there's nothing BAD in expecting him to at least substantiate his comments.
