772. Special Report from the Polish-Ukraine Border

Integration Manager with the Irish Immigrant Council, Teresa Buczkowska, is on a trip to the Polish/Ukraine border to assess the situation and she joined me to discuss what she has seen over the last 4 days and the challenges facing the EU and Ireland. This is an emotional listen and I’m very grateful to Teresa for her time.

To support the organisations she mentions please see the following:
