- Extended description
Kieron Wood reports on young Irish people who are working in Munich, Germany. Summer in Munich means tourists. During tourist season extra staff are needed many of them are Irish.
Finbar Maloney from Limerick has been working in the Bayerischerhoe Hotel as a handyman for seven months. Siobhan Maloney from Youghal serving breakfast in the hotel came here in January. Both are relatively long term employees and are happy in their work. Two sisters Margaret and Angela Dorgan from Cork are working as chamber maids. They are shown making a bed. Margaret and Angela are students working in Munich for the summer to earn fees for university.
Margaret Dorgan, Angela Dorgan, Siobhan Maloney and Finbar Maloney talk about working in Munich. They talk about difficulties of working as students, how it is possible to get by without speaking German but having the language makes things a lot easier.
At the Siemens building in Munich Kieron Wood says, "Among those who do speak German are the full time Irish residents who work in companies like Siemens. They are well paid professionals most of them now living as part of the host community."
A group of young Irish people are in Munich's only Irish pub. They talk about settling into living in the city, the effort involved in breaking away from the Irish group and meeting German people. They stress the importance of learning the language. One man says even knowing the German language it is still difficult to get to know the German people.
