The PolskaÉire Festival is a nationwide celebration of Irish-Polish friendship and culture. It was established to coincide with the UEFA Republic of Ireland vs. Poland qualifier in March 2015. We hoped for 10, max. 20 events, to be organized around the match. The response was overwhelming: there were more than 100 events all around Ireland, from sport to literature, from family events to music and many more!

Therefore we decided to continue this initiative and this year we bring you the second edition of the Festival. Again, there will be plenty events where the Irish and Poles can celebrate together their friendship, learn from one another and most importantly: share “Dobry Craic”. Join us and celebrate this Festival with us! The craic will be dobry!

In Kilkenny the festival will be officially launched in Butler House at 4.00 pm on 16th May. All KPS members are invited to attend the launch. More information about the festival can be found on
