Roma, experienced the same shyte in Paris over a decade ago. Watched from a distance and unable to do anything while Americans had their pockets emptied on the underground. They never stood a chance. Sadly a typical American tourist wouldn’t at all be familiar with the Roma, even harder when they dressed in more normal casual attire, whereas I could spot them a mile away and turn course many times.
You’ll be glad to know the Irish taxpayer has been subsidising these networks living accommodation. Most probably including the under age wives and so on.
Who knows what’s going to happen tomorrow but will there be many Irish locals, you know Dubliners, in Dublin city, so many in passing comment have been saying, “I don’t go into Dublin city anymore…”
