After Poland joined the EU Michal migrated with his family from an industrial city in Silesia, Poland to a rural village in Northern Ireland. Michal was 14 and at first fought against his parents’ decision but now realises it was beneficial.

He feels sorry for Britain leaving Europe. He may have to leave but will retain his European passport. Listen to his eloquent story here and listen out for that northern Irish lilt.
