Creating a false image of nation

Sir -- I refer to the article "Poles in fear of 'starved Irish' influx" by John Drennan in the Sunday Independent of April 10, 2011.
I would like to express my serious discontent with the way Ireland was depicted in the article published in the Polish weekly, Newsweek.
I wish to stress that the Polish people are very fond of Ireland, its people and its culture and are grateful for the warm welcome that thousands of Poles have received in recent years. I would like to reassure you that the excellent reputation Ireland has among my compatriots at home has been, and will remain, unchanged.
