What a great integration Festival in Kilkenny for the 4th Polska Eire Festival 2018.
PolskaEire Festival Kilkenny www.twilight.ie
The curtain came down on the Polska Eire 2018 festival on Sunday 10th of June. It was a wonderful day of family fun between not only our two communities but other groups who are now settling in Kilkenny.
It was great to see everyone coming together to help with this growing Festival. Our Integration Community Cup five sides blitz was a major success on Saturday when we saw the African Panthers come out on top as they beat the winners for the past two seasons Ireland. I personally look forward to the day when Poland win this competition. Another opportunity is not too far away to claim the Twilight / FAI Integration World Cup in October of this year.
When One festival finishes we start the count down to the next one We hope with your help ,and our communities coming together we can make 2019 the best Festival in Ireland! If any one has ideas for an event let us hear your plans and get it going !
May we take this opportunity to say a special thank you to our sponsors. With out your help and kindness we would not survive or have a festival. Thank very much for you continuing support.
I hope and I trust we can work together and ensure that the Polish community in Kilkenny can have a major impact on society in Kilkenny City & County. We are currently working on a number of projects for our community and we hope to soon get together and plan all activities that we agree are needed for integration and social inclusion.
Once again thank you for all your support and best wishes ,
