David Quinn: The abuse is getting worse – we all need to show some tolerance

LAST week, I was doing a bit of Christmas shopping in the Henry Street area when a man recognised me and in a burst of anger condemned me as a "Catholic toerag".

I replied, "Happy Christmas", or words to that effect and kept going.

If this had happened in Belfast, I suppose it would be regarded as a 'sectarian incident'. How should we regard such a thing in Dublin?
