Elizabeth Coyle - Embassy Canberra
I have worked at Embassy Canberra for the last 38 years and over that time it has been an enormous privilege to be part of a great team both past and present in witnessing the significant changes over the years.
The Embassy is Canberra is also accredited to New Zealand, Fiji, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
I have worked in many and varied roles over the years and witnessed, at first hand, the high regard in which this Mission is held among the Irish community.
My current role is Executive Assistant to the Head of Mission and also assisting with cultural activities. My tasks and duties vary from providing administrative support to the Ambassador to arranging our annual St Patrick’s Day celebration which is a highlight of the Embassy calendar.
2016 was an important year for the Embassy as we celebrated 70 years of diplomatic relations between Ireland and Australia with the launch of an online photographic exhibition and a series of cultural concerts featuring visiting Irish artists at the Embassy Residence.
