Best Answer

The relationship between the Irish and people of African descent has ebbed and flowed over the centuries. During their early Immigration to the United States, the Irish often lived in the same ghettoes as blacks. However, they were soon embraced by the Democratic Party, which at that time was anti-abolitionist, and claimed blacks would take the Irish's jobs. The New York City Draft riots saw Irish-black relations reaching its lowest point. Today, Ireland is less than welcoming to its African immigrant. However, it's yet to be determined if that relates to racism, or competition for jobs.

Ireland's status has changed regularly during its period as a British colony. Dublin was first identified as being a capital city in 1171 and has been a capital ever since then. As Ireland has changed and become different things, Dublin remained the capital. The Republic of Ireland came into being under the 1948 Irish constitution, which came into being on the 18th of April 1949, so it can be said that from then it has been the capital of the Republic of Ireland.
