The number of people diagnosed with HIV in Ireland is rising amid concerns that ambivalence about the disease is putting increasing numbers of people at risk. A record 512 cases of HIV were diagnosed in the State last year.
Rates have been rising steadily since 2011, with experts saying complacency and risk-taking among a younger generation is contributing to the rising numbers.
This generation hasnt grown up with the legacy or even the reality of HIV, said HIV Ireland executive director, Niall Mulligan. It was a massive issue in the 1980s and we were aware of it. We were very scared and thankfully, this is not the case now, but I think we still need a greater level of education and awareness for this generation. [ ]
In the UK, unprotected sex and communal drug use at chemsex parties are partly to blame for the high levels of HIV infection which has been at around 6,000 people a year since 2009 as well as the growing epidemic of syphilis, gonorrhea, and a new infection called lymphogranuloma venerium (LGV).
Along with the increase in HIV cases, there has been a dramatic rise in other sexually transmitted diseases (STIs) in Ireland in the past 12 months.

What could possible cause the spread of HIV?
It's either one of these guys: Gerald Fitzpatrick or Patrick FitzGerald.
Leprechaun fag bump.
Or, they are just importing more people with HIV from African nations.
No; that isn’t it. How many of such people would openly admit to being homosexual and attending “chemsex parties”?
Yet no mention of what they’re letting cross into their borders.
I wouldn’t cite that as a primary cause. This is the country that voted for “marriage equality” in a referendum, remember.
Wasn’t “marriage equality” supposed to remedy all of this?
That gets my vote. Muslims are the most dangerous group to colonize Ireland since the Vikings in 800 AD and the English since forever.
With a big push from George Soros, who is determined to kill Christianity wherever it is concentrated.
And now the country has a homosexual prime minister, who also supported the referendum in question.
I get so sick of the narrative that "anyone is at risk of HIV infection." What a worn out lie.
No, normal people who are faithful to their spouses (i.e. opposite sex) are NOT at any viable risk of contracting AIDS. I can't stress this enough.
