A message from Consul General, Eoin Bennis


Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Website of the Consulate General in São Paulo.

It is a privilege to have been chosen to represent Ireland in São Paulo as Consul General and together with my colleague, Vice-Consul Jill Henneberry, we greatly value the backing we receive from the Irish community and all friends of Ireland in the region.

At the start of 2018 we moved to our permanent offices on Alameda Santos. The opening of the new Consulate General demonstrates the deepening of the relationship between Brazil and Ireland and our commitment to the future of this partnership. Through trade and investment, educational exchange, cultural events and tourism, new connections are being made between our two nations, which benefit both our peoples.

Over the coming years, I, together with the great team in the Consulate, will work hard to further develop these connections, old and new, as well as providing services to Irish citizens, across the seven states in the South and Southeast region of Brazil – São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná and Espírito Santo – that the Consulate has responsibility for.

I hope that you will find our website and our Twitter account useful. In addition, the Consulate will launch a Facebook account, Ireland in Brazil/Irlanda no Brasil, in the coming weeks that will provide additional information about our activities and about Ireland.

I look forward to meeting many of you here in Brazil over the coming period and I would very much welcome your ideas for potential collaboration so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via this website.

Muito obrigado - Thank you - Go raibh maith agat.

Eoin Bennis

Consul General of Ireland, São Paulo.
