And you never went to Ireland

I have been there once. It was summer and everything was cold, Colder than in Poland. Yes its green but a cold wind chill your ass - why bother to come back, better go to Greece, Croatia or Spain.

Architecture is nicer and better in Poland if you don't look at those communist bloks. Women are overated too, there are some pretty ladies but if you take ratio between pretty, OK and ugly that works in Poland favour too.

Sorry Atch, Ireland has always been too far but I promise I will get better and we will go to Ireland someday.

People don't go to Ireland for the weather. They go for the history and the culture and mostly to meet the people.

Where did you go? There are many very old and beautiful buildings in Ireland, older than Poland, and lots of quaint little villages, some are very pretty. Poland does have some impressive public buildings but to be honest now, there are alot of incredibly depressing fugly settlements that pass for villages. It's because of your history and the fact that many of your original, beautiful wooden buildings were destroyed and you don't have enough conservation/preservation orders for the remaining ones.

Anyway, it's mostly for the natural beauty that people visit Ireland, not the buildings.

there are some pretty ladies

Again, in Ireland, men don't go for the 'prettiest' women. They prefer women who have a bit of personality. Irish men like women who can drink them under the table and have a laugh :))

The EU will not give up

As far as the EU is concerned Brexit is done, the withdrawal deal and free trade agreement was negotiated, ratified by the British parliament and the EU. it may be altered but not scrapped otherwise there is a very real possibility there would be a trade war. That could impact Poland for the very short period before the UK folds.

With success in the north comes success in the 26 counties. The same party in government in both parts of the island is very worrying for the corrupt right wing duopoly that have basically run the place (26 counties) since independence. Ireland is a small country so the impact a Sinn Fein government will have on the EU will be minimal except when it comes to reunifying the country. Sinn Fein will do everything to encourage the EU to support their position.

In the big scheme of things Sinn Fein and Ireland wont have an impact on Poland

Some of the finest eighteenth century buildings in the world, specifically the ascendency era mansions. For a relatively small (even very small in population terms) some of them are remarkable.

it may be altered

This has always been the case. Although the EU dislike it, provisions exist to adapt to changing situations like the one we have right now.

But Sinn Fein is not in government in the Republic and although they've cleaned up their image they're still seen as far too extreme and left wing by most people. There is definitely a sense in Ireland that SF would run the country into the ground.

As for the other parties, right wing is a bit of a stretch. Irish politics has always been pretty much centrist. I would say it used be Fianna Fail was the socially conservative party, Fine Gael was like the equivalent of the English liberal party, then you had a small presence of the Labour party and a small but important group of independents. Again, to call them corrupt by international standards of corruption is a stretch. The old brown envelopes for planning and the banking crisis, and of course nepotism and cronyism because Ireland is so tiny but there's a lot worse places in the world.

@Atch
Sinn Fein are well ahead in the polls, they topped the polls in the last general election but failed to stand enough candidates, their lead has been consistent for years it wasn't a protest vote. In a multi seat PR election they probably will be the largest party possibly having enough TDs to govern without coalition.

The documented corruption of FF and FG though not on a Mexican level is still proportional to the size and location of the country.

The impact on Poland will revolve around how they use their EU veto to achieve unity. The EU had Irelands back over Brexit and everyone saw that clearly.

I'm not sure what you mean Barney. If you mean a united Ireland we can only get that through a border poll and we won't have one of those for a long time.

possibly having enough TDs to govern without coalition.

Doubt it very much. The elections are three years away and a lot will depend on how they conduct themselves in NI over that time. Personally I'd hate to see SF in power in the Republic even in a coalition but they're needed in the north. While the last remnants of the DUP fanatics and friends are still around, you need SF. That's how I feel anyway.
