The general impression appears to be very positive.

Well, I'll let the Poles judge that :)

I find that Poles here in Dublin are surprised and impressed that I have taken the trouble to learn some of their lingo.
That has to be good...

I spent 3 years working in Ireland and I can't say a single bad word about
the country and its people. Seriously, Irish are the bunch of nicest c*nts
one could ever hope to meet. The great memories will stay with me for the
rest of my life and I plan to come back there for my holidays as often
as possible. God bless Ireland.

God bless Ireland.

It's a shame I can't agree here. I've been in N. Ireland now for four years and have had to move 6 times due to racial hatred and spite directed at me. I have been shot at, spat at, told to "**** off back to England f'ing limey *****" etc etc. I've had dogs muck and used sanitary towels thrown in my garden and other unmentionable things thrown at me. I've had to get restraining orders against two men. I could go on but I am still having counselling because of this disgraceful behaviour. Ireland's troubles are far from over. Mine will be when I move to Poland next year.

Having lived in Hong Kong, America, Australia, New Zealand, India, Germany, Switzerland and visited other places for shorter stays I am pleased to say that I usually make friends easily and have many friends all over the world. Sadly I can't wait to leave this freezing cold dump and hope never to come here again. :-(

I'm sad to hear that okgirl. Maybe things are different in Northern Ireland.
I lived in Dublin and never encountered any kind of hatred or spite.

I sympathise with your situation but we are not all the same. what part of the North are you living in ?

mostly in the Irish pubs(which I prefer more than Eng ones)

Ive met many Poles who love to voice their preference of the Irish over the English.

Couldnt honeslty explain why except perhaps the mutual passion for alchohol.

They think that Polish and Irish people have things in common, like to drink, like to party, and have similiar views on a wide range of subjects. However, my Polish friends often comment on how they miss things about Poland like the traditions at Easter and Christmas. And also how they can't get nice Fresh Bread here cos In Poland they can go to a bakery at about 4am and get gorgeous fresh bread on the way home from a nite-club.

Looks like people from the republic of Ireland are OK and these from NI not.

Jasus your comments get more hilarious by the post.

I lived in the 6 counties in the North for most of my life until 6 years ago when I moved to the 26 counties (Republic of Ireland)

Where do I fit into your analysis ?

How do you know?

What analysis?
Someone is juming to the conclusion that all it is.

My point exactly. His comments are unfounded.

Just random gibbering, it happens from time to time. Just an outburst, Greg is usually smarter than that.
