The Irish community in Latvia is very small, estimated at less than 100 citizens. Included in this number are a growing number of children born in Ireland to Latvian parents.
We provide grants to Irish organisations in Latvia and across the world, focusing in particular on the most vulnerable of our emigrants.
The Presidential Distinguished Service Award for the Irish Abroad recognises sustained, distinguished service to Ireland, its communities abroad or its international reputation by those living abroad.
Promoting Irish culture is an important part of the Embassy’s work. We work with key organisations to enhance the opportunities to enjoy Irish culture, including music, poetry, theatre and film.
Saint Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of what it means to be Irish and the Embassy uses the opportunity every March to showcase Ireland at our Embassy reception.
