I’d say a lot of it is to do with the way society has changed thanks to the Celtic Tiger. People now commute large distances from the outer suburbs to where they work cosequently they are out early and back late. Because the house prices have gone insane mortgages have be paid for out of two salaries hence mammy becomes taxi driver to baby dumped in creche 5 days a week (most creches open 7-7 these days). Infrastructure (Motorways not train lines or bus-only routes) only seems to be built so that the lands around them can be rezoned for domitory housing. So given the fact that people work long hours, both parents work to service debts, commutes have become insane and the only time you get to yourself is the weekend, no-one actually has time anymore to become part of the community.
