WHO WE ARE

 

 

To Be Irish is an initiative to create meaningful connections with the Irish diaspora around the world. Celebrating individuals, families, community organisations and businesses with Irish roots, To Be Irish aims to be a virtual hub for sharing the joy of being Irish at special moments throughout the year. 

 

In 2020 and 2021, we presented To Be Irish at Christmas connecting our global Irish family over two festive seasons.  In 2022 we are delighted to be marking To Be Irish on St Brigid’s Day

“St. Brigid’s Day traditionally represents the beginning of spring in Ireland and we see it as an apt occasion to celebrate the many talented women who contribute so much to Irish and British life.”
