Lifting the veil on Ireland's fastest-growing religion

By John Meagher
Lorraine O’Connor has had to get used to the “go back to where you come from” taunts. They occur more frequently than she cares to think about – on the street, in the park, at the supermarket.

By Lauren Booth
London (CNN) — “Here we go again,” I sigh, browsing news channels. Each one, leading with the chilling buzzwords: “Islamic State” and “Jihadist Murder.”

Not since the weeks following the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York has turning on the TV been so demoralizing for Muslims across the globe.
