authors' profiles: polish authors in ireland
The United Kingdom has been a multicultural country for a long time so, metaphorically speaking, the post-EU-accession migration was just like another ice-cube added to the drink. It changed the volume in the glass, but it did not alter the taste. In Ireland, instead, a comparatively mono-ethnic society turned into a cultural mosaic at the turn of the century, and the migration of Polish people played an important role in that process. With their positive and welcoming attitude towards newcomers, the majority of Irish people seems to have embraced the change that took place in their country. The following section presents Polish authors whose books were inspired by their stay in Ireland.
