According to the news portal, the message sent to Lithuanian couple said “maybe you don’t understand what I am writing here. But it’s never too late to… learn Dutch”. It also suggested them to “return to Ireland”.




The Lithuanian couple that got the postcard last week admits that they work very hard in their catering business and pay all taxes. The couple says they would like to speak better Dutch but they work so hard every day that there is no time left for language classes.
