In October, Consul General Claire McCarthy was pleased to make her first visit to Oklahoma City, with Ireland House colleagues Sara Hill, Enterprise Ireland, and Mary McEvoy, IDA Ireland.
The Ireland House visit to Oklahoma started with a focus on trade connections.
The team were pleased to meet Oklahoma’s innovation leaders in technology, aerospace and energy with the Oklahoma Department of Commerce and the Oklahoma Centre for the Advancement of Technology.
Consul General McCarthy was honoured to visit with our friends in the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, including Chief Batton.

A visit to the new Choctaw Cultural Center was a special highlight. The Center is informative, creative, welcoming and, above all, offers a real opportunity for meaningful reflection.
