'NO Irish need apply' -- the signs are already going up on building sites abroad in a throwback to the grim days of the the last century.
But this time they are starting to appear in Poland as that country takes its revenge for the way in which some unscrupulous Irish contractors treated their countrymen during the years of the Celtic Tiger.
Fukk, better mark Poland of the list, anybody know if Latvia and Lithuania are hiring
Check your link again, I just skimmed through it, but nothing about what your post title says is in that link
Your link goes to a story about the downturn in the Hotel and pub trade in 2008.
They are just right, look after your own people.
Sure was Paddy Go Getter not ripping off the foreigners for years, thinking he was the big shot. Not bend over Paddy.
Maybe all our little politically correct Irish people will finally realise they have been had, how does it feel to have the shoe on the other foot, Paddy?
(And by the way, I am an Irishman myself, but not a "european".)
I dont see poland mentioned in the article
Where you from then, Ireland, America? You're european, no matter what angle you look at it from.
Well I think it's a load of balls, they came over here and worked, if we had "no polish" signs up there would be a lot of discrimination cases. They wanted in the EU, they are in the EU, it's tough sh!t. They should be sorted out. That annoys me...
I saw Polish people treated very badly here. Under paid or not paid at all. It was well known. I made several Polish friends, and I was embarrased to be Irish at times.
This did not happen in all cases, but it was quite common.
But this is still wrong!
No I'm irish but not European, big difference.
Who said they wanted into the EU, their "elected representatives"? You look after your own people first. That is how things should work, the average irishman has had his head so fried by political correctness he does not know what he is at.
I worked on the sites with the Polish people myself. Great people, very well educated and they were treated like skip rats.
At all times I am ashamed to be Irish, I never seen a people so turned by the lure of a few pound. Disgusting.
Can you explain how you are Irish but not European? If one of your parents is Irish and you were born and raised on another continent then it maybe work (Then you would be half Irish, like the rest of the world).
Are you for real? Seriously...
They weren't draged kicking and screaming, I didn't hear of any riots and major protests against the move. They are in the EU now so they must play by the rules.
Oh they'll learn soon enough.
What, I was born in 1969. Well before we joined the beloved "european community". And it is a political matter, next thing you will be telling me you are a "world citizen", just wait until the propaganda comes out and you update your operating system.
Oh, I'm serious alright.
What will they learn, if I learnt anything about the eastern europeans it is this, they do not liked getting pushed around.
Times change, unfortunately for you as it seems, you are now a European. There is no possible way of denying that. Ask anyone, you are European
I suppose you think joining the EU was a bad thing, right?
Well they put up with it for long enough, made a pretty penny from it too. They weren't complaining when they first came over.
