Minister of State Ciarán Cannon, TD, announces publication of the

Global Irish Diaspora Directory

 

Following on from commitments at the second Global Irish Civic Forum in May, Minister of State for the Diaspora, Ciarán Cannon TD, launched the first edition of the Global Irish Diaspora Directory.

 

“This is a great initiative which has been developed to meet a real desire among our diaspora to connect better with home and with each other around the world.”

 

“Ultimately the purpose of this Diaspora Directory is to help Irish Diaspora organisations improve their communications and collaboration with each other, and to assist people looking to reach out to Irish organisations abroad.”

 

The Diaspora Directory includes the details of Irish community welfare, culture and heritage and networking groups in 34 countries. Minister Cannon said:

 

“For the first time we are able to showcase the diversity of work that the Irish diaspora is engaged in and I’m pleased to see such excellent representation from groups engaging in frontline welfare services as well as those who are working tirelessly to preserve our heritage and culture overseas.”
