Dear Friends,

Welcome to the website of the Consulate General of Ireland in Atlanta. I hope that you will find our website and Twitter account informative. 

For more than 300 years, people from Ireland and people of Irish and Scots-Irish descent have contributed to the great achievements and special character of this part of the United States. Through the Consulate, we pay tribute to this legacy, while working to support and develop Ireland’s contemporary relations with the Southeast.

We greatly value the backing we receive from the Irish American community and all friends of Ireland in the region. I look forward to working with many of you in the months and years ahead. If you have any comments or queries, please Contact Us.

Le gach dea-ghuí,

Shane Stephens

Tríd an gConsalacht, léirímid an meas atá againn ar an oidhreacht sin, agus bímid i mbun oibre chun tacú le caidreamh na hÉireann leis an Oirdheisceart sa lá atá inniu ann agus é a fhorbairt.
