The Embassy’s History

In 2005 Ireland opened an overseas development assistance office in Sierra Leone, officially marking the beginning of a warm relationship between Ireland and Sierra Leone. Since then we have expanded in size and in numbers and we have increased our financial support to Sierra Leone. In 2014 we upgraded our presence to an Embassy and in 2016, Catherine Campbell was appointed the second Ambassador of Ireland to Sierra Leone.
