As I said, "Live and let live", if you're happy with that, I won't argue.
Be just aware that Northern Ireland compared to what the whole Europe has to offer is like a Mini compared to a Ferrari.
Anyway, "live and let live".

Why did you hate Rome so much? What is your kind of history?

As pointed out before: Living standards in Northern Ireland are on average comparable to some far flung place in Central/Eastern Europe... Just compare the stats on GDP per capita and you'll notice that NI is far from being a wealthy region...

List of European regions by GDP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But it's probably better that we people abroad don't have to deal with a spoiled brat like you...

Why? What made you speak English better in France than in Spain?

Why do you say that? Because he lives in a 4,000 square foot house he hates because it is oh so 1990s and wants daddy to gut it and remodel it for him, to meet his standards of contemporary en-suite decor? And has absolutely no interest in traveling where he needs to share the streets with riffraff who are beneath him and who speak goofy inferior languages, like Austrian?
