 Ireland is no stranger to Islamophobia and anti-Muslim racism.This submission of Islamophobia in Ireland for 2015 provides further evidence of anti-Muslim hostility and discrimination in the Irish context at the interpersonal, structural and discursive levels. Reported experiences of anti-Muslim racism provided here draw on data gathered and provided by the non-governmental organisation (NGO) European Network Against Racism (Ireland) (henceforth ENAR Ireland) through its online racism reporting mechanism; and insights are also drawn from research undertaken with Muslim communities on behalf of the Immigrant Council of Ireland (ICI) funded by the Open Society Foundation (OSF). The insights provided by both of these sources detail experiences of physical assault, verbal abuse - on- and offline - as well as institutional discrimination against Muslim men and women in Ireland underpinning a need for broad societal response.
