Athbhliain Faoi Mhaise Daoibh: Diarmaid Coffey

New Zealand - Christchurch

I always find the summer Christmas different, and have never got used to it after nearly 19 years, although the kids love it! It is always great to take time to catch up with family and friends over Christmas and I take great enjoyment in catching as many programmes on RnaG and TG4 mar coime√°dann an Ghaeilge an nasc sin eadrainn agus an pobal in √Čirinn. Athbhliain faoi mhaise daoibh!

Thank you to our Ambassador and Deputy Head of Mission, Peter and Faran, all the embassy team, the Christchurch Irish soc and the wider Irish community in NZ
