Our History

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade will mark 100 years of representing Ireland overseas in 2019.

In the lead up to January 2019, we are looking back at some of the key moments that have shaped our work.

Each week, we’ll highlight a moment from the past 100 years, counting forward from 1919 when the ‘Message to the Free Nations of the World’ was delivered in Dáil Eireann.
