    Abstract

    This chapter focuses attention on the sources, patterns of use and attitudes of Polish migrants in Ireland to the locally available mix of media and telecommunications. It also starts to explore the cultural implications of their media use. Does the available mix of media and communications help to preserve social relationships with friends and family elsewhere and a sense of Polish cultural identity or serve to pluralise and develop new identities? More specifically what role do transnational, international, national and local media play in the migration process to Ireland?
