Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know about the immigrant muslims they were hoping to "rescue Ireland" from creeping modernity, but from the immigrant africans that I know in the US (bearing in mind that my wife is Congolese, so I may only know a relative handful, but some as more than casual acquaintances), I would not be surprised if they would be a net "No" vote ... but also not surprised if the younger immigrants voted more like their peers than the older ones.

And that margin is important for this kind of issue, since a smaller cohort needs to tilt very strongly to one side in order to deliver an outsized margin.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
