Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The economy is depressed, the society is still often cliquish, homophobic and sectarian, and loyalist gangs have been known to attack foreigners when they don't have easy access nationalists... They like to keep to their own kind.  It's improving slowly in some respects, but it would be a tough place for a Syrian or Iraqi to integrate into and I'm not aware that many have tried or been given the opportunity.  In contrast, Syrian refugees are being welcomed into rural Irish towns although the numbers have been small to date.
