The existence of Ireland the Nation as a political entity is not necessarily beholden to language or culture, it's a product of the history and shared common understanding/interests in a manageably sized community and includes the diaspora and also dissenters from the cultural norms.Anyway, Ireland, as a nation, still (tenuously) exists. That fact cannot be ignored and although at times its verrrrry frustrating, Id rather be misruled at home by one of my own (through no choice of mine, but historically and culturally still ''real'') rather than someone else whose not Irish, who doesnt understand the intricacies of my culture, language, music, humour, etc. .
There is no outside force which could better understand or meet the local needs and rights of the National community than its own people.For me, that's the bottom line. So, I propose we fix things ourselves, as a solution from outside will never build the type of lasting change that needs to occour.
If we choose to elect donkeys we'll do it, if there are consequences in so doing, then we'll learn from those consequences and act on them. There is no freedom in being 1% of a disparate community that it isn't going let us hold it to account for making the choices as to how we live our lives..
