Abstract

This paper examines the end of Irish monoculturalism and the changes which
gave birth to the multicultural Dublin of today. It critically explores the reasons
for the delayed industrialisation of Ireland, including the role of the Catholic
Church and the specific nationalist forces which dominated the polity and
economic thinking during the early years of the new Independent Irish State. The specific forces which gave birth to the Celtic Tiger and oiled the boom decade are outlined and the role of the EU, US multinational corporations and petro dollar recycling are evaluated. Ireland, historically the subject of emigration, has now experienced immigration for the first time in its history. The small and developing ethnic media are examined, along with the wider cultural engagement by the ‘new Irish’.
