The last time I wrote about xenophobic attitudes in Dublin I was assured it was the exception rather than the rule. I'm sure that was true then and is now. Nevertheless it's disappointing that such attitudes are one again evidenced by today's news that an English pipe-fitter received regular "racist" abuse from his Irish colleagues who deliberately sang "Irish songs of a political nature" to/around him.
The equality tribunal hearing the case found he was "racially" harassed but rejected the claim that his dismissal (after only 2 months) was based on his nationality.
