Each year Dr Cierlik organizes a research trip to Poland for her students where they can participate in lectures in University of Gdansk, have a masterclass in archive materials in IPN,. Students learn complexities of Polish history by visiting Westerplatte, Stutthof concentration camp and Tutonic Knight headquarter in Malbork, as well as the Solidarity Institute in Gdansk.

After the WWII Ireland became temporarily a home for a number of Poles who fought in the war. They came to study at Irish universities and UCC played important part in this program. It is largely forgotten story about how UCC and its President Prof O’Rahilly help Poles in exile.
