Il 21 maggio a Dublino si scriverà una pagina di storia del rugby polacco, ma non solo, con la prima sfida tra una squadra dell’Isola in Verde (un Leinster Representative Side) che giocherà contro i campioni di Polonia dell’Arka Gdynia. Il match, presentato oggi nella capitale irlandese, è uno degli avvenimenti in programma nell’edizione 2016 (la seconda) del PolskaÉire Festival.

Durante la presentazione dell’evento, tenutasi a Donnybrook (Dublin 4) Ryszard Sarkowicz, ambasciatore polacco in Irlanda, ha detto che “we are proud to present the second PolskaÉire Festival, with rugby taking centre stage, just as soccer did last year. 2016 is special to us as, apart from the Irish Centenary, we are also celebrating 40 years of diplomatic relations between Poland and Ireland. I especially cherish the way the Festival manages to engage with local communities around the country – alongside large scale events in cities from Dublin to Cork, there are also events in smaller towns such as Balbriggan, Gorey and Arklow. PolskaÉire really gets people to go out there and celebrate Irish-Polish friendship. As we say at PolskaÉire: the craic will be dobry!

Il presidente di Leinster, Robert McDermott, ha aggiunto che “this is a wonderful and unique sporting fixture and I know all the lads involved with the Leinster team are looking forward to the fixture. It is great to be involved in the PolskaÉire Festival 2016 and I am delighted to support the festival. I’d ask Leinster supporters to come out and support our boys in blue in Donnybrook and to keep an eye out for other great events all over the province.
