Launch of Global Irish Diaspora Directory

Launch of Global Irish Diaspora Directory

Following on from commitments at the second Global Irish Civic Forum, Irish Abroad Unit have launched the first edition of the Global Irish Diaspora Directory.

In total there are 360 organisations listed in this Directory, comprising all organisations that have been funded in the last five years by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Emigrant Support Programme. In addition, any organisation that was represented at the 2015 and 2017 Global Irish Civic Forums is also included in the Directory.

Ultimately the purpose of this Diaspora Directory is to help Irish Diaspora organisations improve their communications and collaboration with each other, and to assist individuals who may be interested in reaching out to Irish organisations in a particular location.

As a Department we have a strong commitment to upholding best practice in data protection and for this reason all the details in the directory have been sourced from publicly available information.

Organisations are grouped by geographic area and then alphabetically. We have also added “tags” to organisations, to aid in your search and to give an indication of the type of work the organisation is engaged in. The information and links in this document are valid as of 1st August 2017.
