We lift the lid on hidden Ireland..where anything goes

We were once known as the Island of Saints and Scholars – but now modern Ireland has become the island of sinners and swingers.

Where Catholic morality once ruled the nation, now it seems like anything goes as an adventurous Irish public throw off the shackles of the past.

This week the Sunday World looks at how sex, and the vice trade, has changed in modern Ireland.

We explore how prostitution has reached into every corner of the country and how many small villages now have one pub, one shop and one brothel on their main street. We also investigate how cheap flights to central Europe have made sex tourism an affordable option for many Irishmen.

And it is not just low-cost flights that have changed the landscape. The internet now provides an opportunity for every kink and fetish to be met easily and quickly.
