I am one of those people who has always been on the outside looking in. I never had a strong friendship group when I was in school or college. I left Ireland in my 20's and lost contact with people I knew in school and college. I worked and travelled and had life experiences most Irish people can't relate to. I came back to Ireland and found I am now an anomaly. I am a single female in my 40's with no children and no peer group, friends in Ireland. I have found Irish society is based around the family, people with children and Irish people very reluctant and adverse to making friends and allowing a new person into their social groups. So here I am, alone, with no real life in person friends in Ireland.
