During the 700 year occupation of this Island, UK nationals were the masters. Then they were often regarded as our superiors in all senses : military, legal, property, cultural, education, linguistic etc. Then there was independence, then the troubles in the North, then the Good Friday agreement and so on.
Many young british living in ireland were not even alive during so much of Ireland's troubled history. Are they now just another ethnic minority who came here ? just like all the others ? or do they have a special place in our consciousness ?
So, a question : what is the role and status of UK nationals who live in the Republic these days ?
Please keep the discussion polite and respectful at all times
