Irish community in Australia

Ireland is lucky to have a diaspora who makes a meaningful contribution to our country, whether they're building economic development, raising awareness of our culture or creating a positive image of Ireland here in Australia.

The relationship between the people of Ireland and Australia stretches back to the earliest days of European settlement. We are proud of the contribution made by men and women of Irish birth and Irish descent in building Australia.
