Your OP expresses my thoughts exactly.
My folks live rurally, South Leinster. In the last couple of years there have been a rash of home burglaries in their area, and I worry about them.
I'm down there once a week, and I often say to myself "if somebody is going to break in let it be tonight", there would be some sorry little feckers
if it played out the way I'd like it to.
Thing is, where my parents live, there seems to be one group/family responsible for the break-ins, when they moved into the area the burglaries began.
But as I'm sure you know, rural Ireland is the home of gossip and rumors, and these people I mentioned may not be the real culprits.
Either way one thing is for sure, the local Garda is about as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike, there only being two of them to police a massive
area, and they're tucked up in bed by 10 o'clock. A 999 call will have you talking to somebody 15 miles away, so if a burglary is in progress the
victims are on their own. You'd be better off calling your neighboring farmer who has a shotgun. People need to look out for one another, but like you
said in the above quote, the celtic tiger IMO changed Ireland for the worse and a lot of people don't even bother to get to know their neighbors these
days, but I digress.
