Vivienne’s Story

I moved to uk from Dublin in 1992 with the intention of staying 2 years. I am still here 27 years later. On 6th August I will have lived in Uk as long as I lived in Ireland. My friend told me the other day that I was English now. I disagree. I still feel Irish but have no wish to return to Ireland
