There are various posts on P.ie in regards to the people from Africa who came to Ireland to start a new life. After reading a few It has become apparent that it appears that the African people are not intergrating into Irish society and our way of life.

This can cause serious repercusions further down the road, but the question must be asked, why are they failing to intergrate?

For Example we have Insaka FC. a newly created soccer team in Dublin that has an African name and was setup by an ex African footballer for Africans in Ireland, of course legally it has to be open to all but why did they feel the need?

We also have Miss Africa Ireland,



And the African Students Association.



The ireland Africa Music Awards



And of course we recently had Africa day.




Do we call these people, Irish, New Irish or African Irish?

It's just a group of immigrants and descendants of immigrants holding onto their culture and traditions in a foreign land. No biggie. The Irish did the same in the New World and England.

There are Irish associations and social groups right across the U.S, England, Australia and other countries. I don't see a problem.

Surely as a people we should be coming closer and not keeping our distances and differences?

We should become united otherwise we will end up being just as polarised as any other country with diverse populations.

Okay, that's the sanity out of the way....

There is no legal obligation on any immigrants to embrace Irish Culture, and it is nieve in the extreme to expect immigrants to do so.

Immigrants may well see themselves as pathfinders!

The European migration to North America did not integrate to enrich the native culture and neither was that the object of the migrants th North America.

They went to North America to colonise it, make it their own and exploit its resources!

I can think of at least one other plausible conclusion you might draw from the various immigration threads on p.ie.

Houston Fenians is a Gaelic Athletic sports and social organization that promotes Gaelic games and all things Irish in the Houston area.

Established October 2011, its membership is a mix of Irish emigrants and Americans, that share a passion for Gaelic games.



HOUSTON FENIANS

How about you refer to them by whatever their &*^*ing given name is? Pathetic.
But that is the point, do we call them Irish , new Irish , Africans or African Irish?

They appear to want to be called African Irish but I'm sure that would meet with much disaproval from the liberal left.

Irish people giving out about integration is a bit rich, go to Australia or America or the UK and see all Irish gaa teams usually no outsiders, they eat and drink in Irish bars and restaurants mostly, even set up shops with Irish goods for home sick mammies boys.
We are the worst for integrating abroad so we can't say much...

Your the idiot, your linking to a story about a group wanting to introduce an Irish sport into America.

What I showed you was an Soccer team setup for Africans in a country that already has multiple soccer teams for all.

Setting up their own little Africas here in Ireland seems no different to any genocidal force, Even afte rEuropean colonisation you still now have an Africa nearly 100% populated by a massive African population. However the converse is not true, any 3rd world colonisation of Europe and America leads to the them becoming the majority in those continents too. The repercussions for the Irish can only mean our disappearance if allowed continue.

Why the focus on Africans? Is it because they are predominantly, but not exclusively, black, so one can get away without referring to them as being black even though that's what is really meant, and even if their blackness is mentioned, one can always make reference to white Africans, as a way of proving one's non-racist motives?

I tend to agree here to a point. I'm not sure it's been explicitly stated before, but he's right, there is no obligation to embrace the culture of a host or new country of residence. You have to obey it's laws, but you can engage in debate to change them. You have to accept local cultural norms but you can still argue against them. People have to get used to the fact that culture is continuously evolving. The culture of my parents in Ireland when they were twenty is radically different to the culture of twenty year old Irish people today. it's a transient thing. People should just grow up and accept the fact that there's such a thing now as a global village.

But, what is "our" way of life? Is it not totally foreign anyway? In general, the monoglot Anglophone Irish have no culture to loose. Africans are actually increasing the quantity of culture in Ireland, not lowering it.
