Welcome to the Consulate General’s May newsletter. Did you know that in Ireland 1 May traditionally marked the beginning of the festival of Bealtaine with bonfires being lit to celebrate the first day of summer? In this issue, you can read about our events in April and learn more about our upcoming plans.
Throughout the month of May we are looking forward to participating in several Europe-themed events. Europe Day on 9 May 2023 will be extra special for us as Ireland celebrates 50 years membership of the European Union. Europe Day marks the anniversary of the signing of the Schuman declaration in 1950 and is an opportunity to reflect on the co-operation, prosperity and peace that has come about through the European project. You can check out further details in the events section below.
Follow us on our social media channels to keep up with our latest news, events and travel advice. If you know anyone with an interest in Ireland, please encourage them to sign up for our monthly newsletter, by sending us an email here.
