Ireland may be the nicest place to live in the world according to recent reports – but since May 1st a veritable deluge of people have arrived from Eastern Europe. Polish registered cars now seem to be the most common non-Irish car on the roads. The numbers coming to Ireland seem to mainly come from Poland – with Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia following behind.
And they come to work – and the Irish economy seems to be handling it all quite well. I have already started learning some Polish and Russian. It might come in handy.
Here is a photo of how much Ireland has changed since May 1st – and I think changing for the better.
