Ukraine is supported by the whole world. Ireland, still one of the most closed countries of the European Union, is doing everything possible to help our compatriots who were fleeing the hostilities with their children.

Housing is provided on the island, children go to school, and the government is doing everything possible to give work to Ukrainian women.

Back in early March, two Ukrainian women with children left Kyiv for Ireland. They are currently located in the city of Limerick. There, the boys Egor and Kirill have already gone to a local school.

The Ukrainians were taken in by the Tucker family.

– From the first day of the war, we have been following the events in Ukraine. We contacted a volunteer organization that helps Ukrainians find families in Ireland who are ready to host them. And two hours later we were told that two women with children would come to us,” said David Tooker.

Neighbors bring toys to the boys. Irish children draw Ukrainian flags on the sidewalks and do everything to make Egor and Kirill feel at home.

On February 25, Ireland canceled visas for Ukrainians. Now she accepts everyone who has chosen her for a temporary stay. To date, about 16 thousand Ukrainians have found refuge there.

The old airport terminal in Dublin has now been turned into a makeshift visa application center. Ireland has simplified the procedure for obtaining the necessary temporary protection documents for Ukrainians as much as possible. Here they immediately give the social security number and a letter from the Ministry of Justice confirming the legal stay in Ireland.

These documents allow Ukrainians to have the same rights as citizens of the country. IDPs can receive social payments, use free medical care and, most importantly, find a job. If there is no one to go to, they temporarily settle in hotels around the country. Over time, they are going to settle people in Irish families. Already more than twenty thousand families wished to receive Ukrainians.

Ireland's biggest problem right now is housing. It is not enough, rental prices for a family in Dublin start from one and a half thousand euros per month. Local authorities understand this problem, as well as many others that have accompanied Irish society before. There is hope that this forced integration of Ukrainians will benefit Ireland itself.

“It hurts us a lot that Ukrainians are going through this terrible war. We try to integrate them into Irish society as quickly as possible. So, we are working on the possibility of recognizing teachers' diplomas so that they can find work, - said Irish Minister for Social Policy and Equality Roderick O'Gorman.

Ireland is a country of immigrants. Ten million Irish people at various times were forced to leave the country and seek a better fate. Perhaps that is why the Irish took the pain of the Ukrainians so close to their hearts, who decided to leave everything and leave for the unknown.

Dublin bar owner has apologized for comparing quarantine and Holocaust

Dublin owner Kieran Finnerty, the owner of the Dice Bar in Dublin, apologized for comparing quarantine and the Holocaust after being criticized on social media.

The businessman made a post on his Facebook page (and later deleted it), in which he wrote that closing bars and pubs across the country due to an epidemic was similar to sending Jews from the Warsaw ghetto by train to Auschwitz supposedly for their own good .

Such a comparison caused a storm of indignation among subscribers of Kiran Finnerti. Many noted that temporary measures to close public spaces were incomparable with the tragedy that took the lives of 6 million people.

In the next post, the owner of the bar tried to apologize, but noted that what happened during the war was the result of 20 years of propaganda and the destruction of people's freedoms.

He was also criticized for this statement.
