we went to see the immigration officer today in a nearby town and thanks to our teammates, we had no trouble being accepted. Our teammates already have a good relationship with the immigration officer for our area, so one of them came with us and once the officer knew we were with them, he barely even talked to us – but he gave us permission to stay! We’ll have to re-apply every year, but that’s just the way it goes. To celebrate, we ate at McDonald’s. I know, I know, it’s not a very “Irish” thing to do, but the milkshake was good, so hush.
