I see your point but isnt that choice of lifestyle and minimum interaction a bit sterile and cold. Im not saying one shooud know everything about ones neighbours but it seems hat everyone is living in their own little boxes, normal and polite conversation and the overall sense of community in Ireland is fading within Irish urban livig.
