I think there might be a little bit of animosity between the two nations since the siege of Dublin by king Sobieski in 256 b.c.

I think that opposite sexes are often very friendly.

LOL - Yeah, we'll never forget that. Etched into the national psyche ; )

OP, I haven't heard many (if any?) Irish people complain about Polish people really if that's what you're saying.

I have some very good Polish friends here. I've heard a lot of positive comments about Poles generally. Frome my experience, the two cultures are similar in a few ways:similar oppressed history; similar sense of humour; similar attitude to what should be important in life.

Give it five years we will have a great relationship.

Not so long ago well educated Poles came to Ireland to make sandwiches and coffee for the fat celtic-tiger in five years time it will be the other way round.

Empathy! it can break down borders.

Ok who's next for a coffee and a sambo-ski :-)

bah hahaha! good one.

I never seen anything to suggest paddys and poles are enemies
I never seen a poles treated in a racist..(well xenophobic way...we're of the same race aren't we?).... way at home and I've never once been treated like that since I moved here either.

The national deficit could look a hell of a lot healthier if someone had the cajones to stand up to the public sector and their unions.

Unfortunately, this someone doesn't seem to exist in Irish politics.

as you know, I lived in Poland long enough to have an opinion about it. There are not many handsome guys in Poland (you're an exception :-) )

I find Poles and Irish get along quite well actually, they are not locking themselves up, Poles are actually interacting with the Irish and a lot of friendships are built that way.
From what I experience, Polish here in Ireland get along with all nationalities, something that can not be said from the Poles in Poland...

Where is your sense of humour Polish people??? This comment was meant to be a joke...sorry if it offended...

I live in Galway city where a trial has just concluded , a local young guy was killed by a Polish guy who was handed the murder weapon by his Polish girlfriend...thank goodness we are not narrow minded enough to brand all the Polish here in Galway through the crazy actions of the minority...so yes, we are friends...definitely....in fact it is because of one Polish guy who is soo nice to me at work that it makes my day going in to see him ;-)

The Irish from the Polish point of view:

- They drink as heavy as we do.
- They are Catholics.
- They sing a sad songs about lost heroes when drunk.
- They care about something that happened 500 years ago and then:
- They pick up a fight to decide who was right 500 years ago.

Summarization:
Polish? Irish? What the difference?
Lets drink, be marry and prise the virgin Mary! ;-)

Andy Rowan     Nov 22, 2011, 11:40pm  #24

Well. I'm the son of an Irish Catholic mother and Polish Catholic father, so in my case the two nations are pretty tight as some would say. Both Catholic and both traditionally oppressed by their neighbors, Ireland by England and Poland by the Russians and Germans. Proud of both sides. Slainte. Andy

Idiot.

We are not friends.

That was the 16th Irish person murdered by a Pole since 2005.

They lost their lives due to do-gooders like you. People whom supported the eastern european invasion. If we had background checks and introduced a visa system, only dent poles would get in.

16 Irish killed.

3 poles killed/ All named as racial killings.

Not the 16 Irish killed by poles, but.


The meeja despise the native Irish. In 50 years we will be as rare as a native indian in New York. We are being ethnically cleansed.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

You have very little confidence in your nation RN.
Do you think that emigration is good for Poland ? Think again, in 20 years they will import young people from Asia to Poland to fill gaps in employment.
You at least are getting Poles which will integrate in no time (unfortunately).
All nations in EU are being socially engineered.

Irish men need to take the used up Polish prostitutes of Englands to breed. This will cure them of repressed sexuality and help them to know to dance in good way. A new breed of spirytusowy super builder who are bad with money and not so fat and red!

Revolting comment.

Ironside:

I agree. In a couple hundred of years all whites will cease to exist. The minorities(sic, they are 92% of the global population) will reign supreme. No affirmative action for us, as we "deserve" our belittled position.

True, true. With good reason.

Typical working class hero response. Are you in a union perchance?

Shower of corrupt self serving hypocrites and they have ruined this country.

The deficit has nothing whatsoever to do with Bertie and his cosying up to unions? vastly inflating the public sector payroll and personnel while they all do as little work as possible? handing out his "socialist" money left right and centre? The man should be jailed.

It seems you're the idiot if can put all our woes down to "de eastern europeans"

Ironic, since I assume you hate the "Brit rag", the Daily Mail, that you sound just like one of their readers.
