For all the sniping between people from the UK and Ireland on City-Data, they have more in common with each other than they do with the Continent. So why should Ireland be discussed on the "Europe" forum? This question has probably been asked and answered before...

Because the forum says "United Kingdom" not "United Kingdom and Ireland" or "British Isles".

I think there should be an Irish forum purely for the reason that so many of Ireland's population is currently emigrating to the UK, Canada, Australia and to cities like New York where there is still a heavily Irish influenced community in the North Bronx.

And since the topic of Ireland tends to be an emotive one for some UK (or want to be British Irish patriots) I'm talking actual 'Irish born residents' here before anyone starts to regurgitate that irksome bee in their bonnet about who or who isn't allowed to proclaim themselves as Irish. That path is well trodden. I am merely referring to today's generation of Irish economic migrants who are living the results of their exodus today and perhaps have married or are raising families in a different country.

As many young people are forging a path for themselves in newer climates and countries far from home it would be interesting to see a forum where people could share their experiences. After all Ireland appears to be one of the few English speaking countries not represented with its own board.

It's not essential but it would be nice.

I presume the United Kingdom has its own thread because it's a place many people want to move to,visit or talk about.
Probably more than anywhere else in Europe.
Ireland, however ...

A friend of mine once said to me:

"Do you know why the grass in Ireland is so green?" (He knew about rainfall, so he wasn't talking about that. )

"No, "I said "Tell me."

"Because we're all over here walking on yours."
