By showcasing Ireland's rich cultural heritage, we can reap long-term and positive benefits for Ireland's reputation and its relationship with the people of Turkey. We can also work to connect people with their Irish heritage.
Ireland's culture is a unique national strength. It's one of our greatest competitive advantages, acting as a "door opener" that converts into jobs, trade, investment and tourism. It's also our most effective way of connecting with the Irish community.
We're involved in a broad range of cultural activities, which raise awareness of Ireland and also enhance out ties with Turkey.
The Embassy supports a small range of cultural initiatives throughout the year, collaborating with other groups in music and literature. Details of upcoming Irish cultural events will be available on this website.
Over the years, generations of Irish people have made invaluable contributions to all aspects of life in their new homes, in politics, the arts, business and sports. Their patriotism co-exists with the contribution they have made in their new communities.
