Well, that's really nice, thanks Poland :)

Great to see that Polish people have been warmly welcomed to Ireland and that people moving there appreciate their new home and the new lives they've built.

NEXT MONTH, POLAND will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its accession to the European Union.

According to the Polish Embassy, May also marks a decade of Polish people settling down and living in Ireland.

The staff and diplomats at the embassy said they wanted to "convey their gratitude to the Irish people for the openness and kindness they have shown to Poles".

They also wanted to show "all the joys that the Emerald Isle has to offer".

The embassy even made a video of Polish speaking speaking Irish, what a lovely touch.

This is so beautiful! It's fantastic how Irish Polonia has developed! Is it true that Irish Polonia has assimilated better than say British or German Polonia?

We here in America thank Ireland for all the hot American women of Irish descent!

I don't know about Germany, but I think far better than in Britain.

I think the reason is that the Irish identify with the Poles quite a lot. Traditionally Catholic countries, love to drink and party and have been f!cked by their neighbour(s) for centuries. I think the Irish were so welcoming because we don't really have a tradition if immigration into Ireland so I guess we were kind of taken aback that so many Poles would choose to come to Ireland and like it. Ireland traditionally has a lot of emigration and people trying to get off the island :P

Hello. I love the fact that ireland has become so multicultural. We were known as the land of a thousand welcomes. I hope that still applies. But a friend of mine said that irish people are not allowed into polish pubs. Is This true?

Merged: President of Ireland, Michael Higgins travels to Poland

Just thought I'd post this little known anecdote :

President Higgins is not only a fine man, but he's also a passionate soccer fan. To that extent, he travelled to Poland to watch Ireland play in Euro 2012. I'm astonished and amazed that the President could just hop on a Ryanair flight with his fellow countrymen to cheer on Ireland

It really was President Michael D. Higgins though as he joined hundreds of other travellers on an early morning flight to Poland to cheer on the boys in green.

Anyone else aware of connections between President Higgins and Poland?
