A joint initiative of Inisowiacy Polish Folk Group, Clare Immigrant Support Centre and the Polish Arts Festival Limerick, the Easter Tree of Hope aims to allow local people to decorate their own Easter egg in a Slavic style and hang the decoration at a specially designated tree at Waterpark House. There will be a similar tree in the People’s Park in Limerick. The tree selected in Ennis was planted by members of the Polish Community during the Polska Eire Festival in 2016. Marcin Piotrowski one of those present on the evening the tree was planted and who has recently returned to live in his native Poland was quoted as saying “I’m proud that the roots of tradition we planted are alive and well in Ennis”.
