Message from Ambassador McDonald

Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of Ireland in Luxembourg.

It is a great honour and privilege for me to serve as Ambassador of Ireland in Luxembourg, and to have presented credentials on 21 September 2023 to H.R.H. the Grand Duke of Luxembourg.

I arrived from Dublin having worked for the last two years on strategic and governance issues in the Department of Foreign Affairs. Prior to that, most of my career has been focussed on policy issues at the EU and United Nations, including secondments to the Department of the Taoiseach, and the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, as well as assignments to our Embassy in Paris, and Ireland’s representation to the United Nations in Geneva.

Ireland and Luxembourg enjoy excellent relations, and during my time here, I am eager to explore opportunities to deepen further, the strong ties between the two countries. Over the next few months, I am looking forward to meeting with the local community many of whom are involved in a wide range of business, sporting, cultural and charitable activities.

Importantly, the Embassy is here to assist Irish people who may require support so please do contact us if we can be of assistance.

With best wishes

Jean McDonald

Ambassador of Ireland
