Anyone needing to register if they live in Dublin just can’t. Although, outside the Pale, the local Garda station is open! Mad, ted. It’s impossible for the Department of Justice to track how many would-be residents are currently awaiting registration in Dublin, says a spokesperson. “Statistics are not maintained in this manner.” Among them, though, […]

I rarely if ever use this route, even though it’s much nicer, quieter and […]
