Aiden O'Brien scored for Ireland in the 53rd minute, while Mateusz Klich equalised for Poland in the 87th just as many displeased fans were leaving the venue without waiting for the final whistle.
The match in the south-western Polish city of Wrocław was another tie for Poland in their second match since Jerzy Brzęczek took over as manager of the national squad.
Poland on Friday drew 1-1 with Italy in their first match in the new UEFA Nations League.
That match in Bologna was widely commented on as a promising debut by Brzęczek, who replaced Adam Nawałka after Poland’s early exit from the World Cup in Russia.
Poland were in January drawn to play Italy and Portugal in the group stage of the UEFA Nations League, a new competitive football format designed to replace most international friendlies in Europe.
