Review of Relations between Ireland and France

The Embassy of Ireland in Paris is conducting a review of Ireland’s relations with France – and we want to hear from you.

Ireland has an excellent relationship with France. Our two countries have vibrant and historic cultural, community, political, trade and business links.

But are there areas where our relationship could be further strengthened?

What kind of Irish community activities would you like to be involved with in France? What do you think of Ireland’s image in France? Is Ireland’s culture visible in France? Are there opportunities for stronger business and trade links between Ireland and France?

These are just some of the questions on which we would like to hear your views.

We particularly want to hear from Irish people living in France.

You can get involved by completing our online survey or attending one of our roadshow consultations taking place across France – details below.

Consultations will be open from 31 October to 14 December 2018. So don’t delay – have your say!

This is your opportunity to have your voice heard and help shape the future of Irish-French relations.


Please register here for a roadshow near you – we will send you further details. Please include the city in the subject line.
