Good comment here from Rohan Swee.
"The poster who mentioned how priviliged irish people are to be born in a white western country is spot on. Because after God created all the peoples of the earth, he scattered them about randomly over the face of the planet, and some of them got lucky and were plopped into the cushy white western countries, that came ready-made with maintained roads, functioning social and political institutions, rule of law, that sort of thing.
Others, not so lucky, landed in crapholes. Your commenter makes it sound as if some white western Martians just gifted the lucky dog Irish with their country. And it's all so unfair, since those good things were just there for the taking in Western Europe and some other completely random places, and don't in the least bit represent the cultural work and sacrifice of centuries, that the workers and sacrificers might have wanted to pass on to their own posterity.
Nope, the fickle finger of fate just happened to plop coincidentally-named white western people into mysteriously unconnected white western countries. If we moved all of Nigeria to Hibernia, and transferred the Irish to Nigeria, I'm sure the Irish would be clamoring to live amongst the transplanted Nigerians now, wouldn't they? (Or would we just see some acceleration in the rate of development of advanced sunblock technology?)"
Spot on, would you not agree?
