The text is the same as Irish Independent one, as both newspapers are published by the same company, Tom O'Reilly's Independent News & Media and probably used the same source document.
How can we clarify these accusations?.
I am not saying that an Irish person would not do such a thing and that a Polish person wouldn't stick up such a sign but I don't believe it is happening as much as they are suggesting.
Polskis work much harder than the Irish.
I have noticed how lazy Irish people have become, this is a very new phenomena, Irish people used to work very hard in tough conditions.
I thought that was one of the reason Irish and Polish got on well or at least why we respect them.
Its like Deja Vu all over again....
I think many many Irish songs could be translated into Polish.
In so many ways the Poles are the same as the Irish.
We reap what we sow.
I have lived in Poland on and off for 6 years and since the Poles have legally been allowed to work in Ireland I have been constantly inquiring about how the Poles are treated in Ireland.
My friends and family have been telling me that they are great.
Then I started thinking that they might just be saying that because I live here and they are polite but most of them have been here and all of them loved it, a few of them have learned a fair amount (well past "hello,goodbye, thank you") in Polish and all of them have Polish friends.
The Poles are known for thier work ethic and not complaining, saving money and sending it back home.
These are all things Irish people have done for century's.
The only negative thing I could find was that in the tabloids Poles are being blamed (more than neccasay) for car accidents, which is ridiculious because in Ireland you do NOT
need a full licence to drive on the road.
I have been very well treated and received by Polish people here in Poland.
And i sincerely hope that most Polish people can say the same back in Ireland.
I see that in some ways this forum is like a tabloid, we love to see the worst and talk things down. I would love to hear the success stories but these times in Ireland are hard, so I think there will be less success stories and more people being laid off.
The only plus side is that Ireland and Poland have met and nobody can change that, I look forward to the next generation of Irish/Pole mix.
