Irish community in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos

The Irish community in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos has grown rapidly over the last couple of years, and there are now several hundred Irish living and working here.

The Irish Business Association of Vietnam provides a contact point for the Irish Business Community in Vietnam. For Irish community activities the most active groups are the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh Gaelic Football clubs, the Viet Celts and the Saigon Gaels, which both organise community events, as well as regular matches, throughout the year.

While the numbers of Irish in Cambodia and Laos are small, the Irish expat population is growing rapidly. There are Irish people working in a wide number of sectors in these countries, from hospitality and tourism to teaching and development work. The Embassy provides support to the community, and to community activities.
