Well no more nose holding here where I live. Just to get back on topic, all of the Romas have now been removed from the roundabout by Garda Immigration. They are at the airport awaiting a flight back to Romania.

Meanwhile the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) and DCC (Dublin City Council) are fumigating the vacated site.

Yeah, Dubs seem to think evryone from outside Dublin is a Culchie, infact the rest of the country just refer to people from the countryside as Culchies, and we call people from Dublin Spanners!

Gypsies traditionally are very family oriented. Where dado goes, so go all the family members.

Back to the Romanians. I read recently that there has been trouble in Ulster (not The Troubles kind) between soccer teams. It seems that the Irish teams and the Romanian teams have a lot of conflict.

Have any of you folks in Ireland read about this? If so, is it a big deal or just the usual rowdy behavior that seems to attach itself to soccer and its fans?
